Story Behind the Painting

‘Where two worlds collide’ is a project celebrating all things that live in and around the ocean and rainforest of Costa Rica – especially focusing on the area where these two worlds meet.


Pura Vida is a common phrase used in Costa Rica and translates to 'Pura Life'. I wanted to create something that sums up Costa Rica for me in one painting. Creating a fantasy and dream like world, playing with Vibrant colours, characters and composition. All reference images for this painting were taken by me whilst exploring costa Rica in 2019-2020. The keel-billed Toucan featured in this painting was inspired by my visit to the Toucan Rescue Ranch, where I had the pleasure to meet Patrick. He was one of the oldest residents at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. Patrick was confiscated as an illegal pet from someone's home and I got to see him enjoying his days at the Toucan Rescue Ranch, San Jose. I was captivated by his inquisitive funny character and knew he was going to be the star of the show in Pura Vida

Handling instructions for giclée prints


My giclée prints are exceptional museum quality, professionally printed on heavy weight paper. The care taken during the copying, digital image handling and printing mean that my artwork prints are virtually indistinguishable from the original. As such, to look perfect they should be treated with as much care as you would an original. All prints are packaged with great care and love with the aim of arriving with you in perfect condition.


To ensure that you can treasure my artwork for years to come I recommend a few simple steps:


  • They should be unpackaged and handled with great care – clean hands and surfaces whilst avoiding any finger prints on the surface of the print. If in doubt, simply let a reputable framer handle the print for you.
  • I recommend having my prints professionally framed. Good framers will be able to help you decide on a frame and mount style to suit both my artwork as well as your personal preferences, allowing my artwork to look beautiful in your home.
  • As with all artwork, to prevent long term damage prints should be displayed where they will not be subject to direct sunlight.
