I have a character which represents myself as an artist, and which you may notice feature in some of my galleries, The character originally came from a childrens story I have written to help teach children about difference. It follows the story of an albino cheetah and the different chracters she meets as she embarks on a journey to discover she isnt that different after all. 

Over time people associated the character with myself, and so I gradually adopted it as my logo and art name. The name is African and means *The Beginning*  which I thought was fitting.
