My name is Ricky Dampers
I am 23 years old and I am from beautiful Zimbabwe. My home town is Harare.
At the age of 8 years old I started with my drawings. My first drawings were cartoons, but my love for wildlife is huge, so I decided to teach myself how to draw animals like lions and leopards.
I was pretty young, but soon it appeared that I had the right quality to grow and to make the drawings more beautiful. Sometimes children inherit certain qualities from their parents, but in my case I taught myself everything. My parents are no artists at all.
I use charcoal for my work. From a young age I felt bad when I saw animal cruelty. That stimulated me more and more to show and draw the beauty of wildlife.
Please take a look at my work. You are more than welcome to contact me directly. I can also draw an animal on request. If you have taken a wonderful photo which you like to have as a piece of art in your house, just ask me and we make a plan.
African people always make a plan.
I can ship my work worldwide. I ship it with FedEx. For more details don’t hesitate to contact me via email.
Thank you very much for your support and we might meet each other soon.
Best regards, Ricky Dampers
