Entry Description: These images are from my series, "Before Tomorrow Comes," which focuses on threatened cultures and environments of eastern Africa. The cattle-raising Pokot are one of the last tribes of Africa still wearing animal skins on a daily basis, but their increasing interaction with outside cultures puts their traditional way of life at risk.

About the Artist:

I paint with light and color to create images that are a mixture of wildlife, lyricism and portraiture.”
