I was asked to paint monkeys for a friend and found an article about ‘Pinkie’. This is a small tribute to ‘Pinkie’ from Tacugama Chimpanzee sanctuary in Sierra Leone. They run a chimpanzee rehabilitation scheme there and Pinkie arrived there around 1999. It was the only albino chimp in the world. One rainy day in April 2002, she was found dead which was quite a mystery how? So this painting is to all the people who care for her.

  1. Violet, Thank you, every time I look at them I smile…. I met an old woman who saw some of my paintings she said she likes monkeys, so it is her present from me and I hope she will also smile for many years to come while looking at them.
