The Red Panda is a native of the Himalayas and China was named Ailurus Fulgens, meaning fire coloured or shining cat. Described in 1825 as the most beautiful animal he had seen by French zoologist F Cuvier. Now endangered this small mammal though not a panda feeds mainly on bamboo.

This is my first submission in the UK, having recently arrived from Australia, where my work was regularly exhibited with sales to Asia, Europe and within Australia. Animals are my choice of subject matter and I am delighted to support this worthwhile cause.
