'Curious by Nature'


Leanne Smeda

Nature has been a constant love in my life from early childhood and I am hugely grateful for the amazing opportunities I had growing up in rural Africa, surrounded by all creatures great and small!

When I see young children being raised now with no contact with nature & wildlife other than the bit they may see on TV, I am left saddened - what a missed opportunity to interact with the incredible creatures we share this beautiful planet with.

This exhibition is a reflection of the slowly emerging awareness more and more parents have of the need for their children to be in natural surroundings, to learn from nature and hopefully come to appreciate it more.

After all, our children are the future caretakers….

I hope you enjoy the exhibition!
