The Enawene Nawe are a small Amazonian tribe who live by fishing and gathering in Mato Grosso state, Brazil. During the fishing season, men build large dams across rivers and spend several months camped in the forest, catching and smoking the fish which is then transported by canoe to their village. Following a campaign by Survival, the Enawene Nawe Indians recently secured their right to fish on the Rio Preto, their most important fishing river. The ruling comes after local cattle ranchers obtained an injunction last year banning the Indians from building fishing camps and dams.
"Yavanna, the Giver of Fruits... She is the lover of all things that grow in the earth, and all their countless forms she holds in her mind, from the trees like towers in forests long ago to the moss upon stones or the small and secret things in the mould. She is surnamed 'Queen of the Earth'..." from 'The Silmarillion' by Tolkien.
Within these pages you will find my portfolio of artwork & discover what inspires me to create it all.
I hope you get as much enjoyment from viewing these pictures as I did from producing them!
