Overview

Africa: An Artist's Journal is an invitation to share Kim Donaldson's experience of the continent he loves, through his art, journals and travels.

Replete with information about wildlife, culture and history, the journal combines photographs, sketches, maps and excerpts from the author's diaries and notebooks to create a vivid and multilayered impression of this beautiful continent. Kim focuses only on places he has visited in person - including Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and Namibia - and brings a wonderful breadth of knowledge to this very personal celebration of Africa. His acute artist's vision is tempered with humour and based on an intimate awareness of his subject, resulting in a truly unique perspective. Anyone with an interest in art, conservation or safari will treasure this magnificent collection of work. Africa: An Artist's Journal is an invitation to share in Kim Donaldson's art and experience of walking where the animals walk. Zimbabweanborn, Kim grew up on a 150,000-acre ranch of unspoiled African bush country, traversed by rivers, hills and valleys, and teeming with game. It is this landscape which first inspired Kim to swap his hunting rifle for a camera and a sketch-pad, and which began a lifelong passion for the wildlife of his native continent.

His stunning paintings and sketches have an intangible quality of atmosphere that can only be achieved by those who have spent many years in the bush. Knowing and understanding his subject so well, conservation is very close to Kim's heart, and he never misses an opportunity to help conservation projects. Kim has a genuine love for African wildlife, reflected in his art. Kim experimented with painting, drawing and sculpting from an early age, finally becoming a full-time artist in 1978. Since this time, Kim has made enormous progress in his work and is today regarded as one of the world's leading wildlife artists.
