Angela Chidgey is a painter who for the last fifteen years has lived near Siena in Italy and has now returned to England to live in Dorset but her passion for colour, elephants and now trees is undimmed.
She has illustrated two books, designed wine list covers, tapestries and fabric.
In 2007 at an exhibition at the Smithfield Gallery in London in conjunction with the Born Free Foundation, £15,000 was raised to buy satellite tracking collars for the Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE) which has the longest running elephant research program in the world.
The next project will be a book of all the tree pastels.
