Only few places in the world radiate the energy of Lower Zambezi. Dense forests of winter thorn trees that hug the edges of one of Africa’s oldest rivers. But above all, this timeless valley is a land of giants, of towering, ancient trees and the elephant herds that find sanctuary beneath their dappled shade. During one of my walking safaris in this breath-taking forest with @tuskandmane, my eye caught a young elephant calf that was playing in the distance while the soft morning sun pierced through the tree canopy. The rest of the herd was feeding on winter thorn pods a few yards away, but this little elephant was living in his own little moment.

This image therefore depicts the young and playful spirit of new life for me. A tribute to the beautiful energy of young kids, who often have an outlook on life that’s full of curiosity, joy and amazement. One of the true joys of life. Pablo Picasso could not have said it any better: “every child is an artist; the only challenge is how to remain one as we grow up”.

What people say about my prints


We have been following Pie’s work for more than 5 years now. Therefore, having one of his Umoja prints decorating our home, is not only an incredible honour, but also a testament to our support for his mission as an artist and conservationist. His work is now a beautiful daily reminder of our own memories made in Africa on various trips to Kenya as well as Zambia.

It’s been such a rewarding process to pick & choose the artworks as well as the materials for our two framed Umoja prints. Pie carefully guided us through the entire process and even invited us in his studio in Amsterdam to see some of the samples in person. His approach to making art as well as his commitment to protecting nature, is tangible in every step of the way.
