The Aberdare National Park in Kenya, which ranges from 9 to 15,000 feet in elevation, is an enchanted island of montane forest on the edge of the Rift Valley. The elephants that inhabit this Eden are accustomed to their privacy since there is so much cover to protect them from the few people that visit the park. "My inspiration for 'The Creche,'" says artist Guy Combes, "came from a recent visit. As I approached the herd, these three females immediately huddled around their young to protect them. The Aberdare National Park is a very special place for my own family, too. It is where we regularly gather to pay our respects to my grandparents, my uncle and my father, so the family theme seemed particularly appropriate to me."


Guy Combes
Guy Combes was born in Kenya in 1971, the son of artist Simon Combes. After studying in Kenya for several years he moved to the United Kingdom to continue his education. While in school he developed an interest in visual art. He studied at art college in Cheltenham, then at the Inchbald School of Design. After a short stint as a consultant, Guy diverted his attentions to the catering and licensing trade while painting commissions and design work. Guy is now based in Kenya, where he manages tourist lodges and continues to paint commissions and works for exhibition. In November 2006 he began a program as artist-in-residence at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, New Jersey. His current interests are the history and culture of the Swahili coast of Africa and the diverse wildlife of Kenya. Throughout 2006 Guy visited Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe and the United States and will include observations from these trips in his portfolio.
