I painted this piece in response to the poaching crisis. Elephants are some of the most beautiful creatures walking earth and it breaks my heart to know that they are killed so a few people can marvel at their tusks – which in my view are far less marvelous when removed from the animal itself.
But I’m also inspired. The poaching crisis has received a lot of attention, and as a result, more organizations, influencers and governments have mobilized in support. The story of the elephant isn’t one of despair and hopelessness. I believe that there is a bright and beautiful future for these animals, and that is what this painting is all about.
