I’ve been secretly working on my series “Spirits of Animalia”.🦋 Each piece will have a spirit animal that is endangered… This is a piece that has been an emotionally exhausting creation to make… This is quite an emotional piece for me. When working on the designing process and research, I had to take mental breaks due to being in tears over the horrendous and gruesome realities that are happening to these beautiful creatures. I knew I wanted to paint tigers, the design and ideas behind the piece stemmed directly after learning about pouching and pelting industry. I knew that it was that threat in particular that I wanted to address in the piece. I decided upon making a spirit mother tiger bidding farewell to her cub before parting worlds due to being slaughtered for a carpet. The mere idea of it makes me tearful. I am determined to bring awareness to this disgusting practice in hopes of inspiring change. I feel like there is a heavy burden on my shoulders that demands to be lifted. It is my absolute duty to make a difference for suffering animals, I am determined to discover how I can use my artwork to do so.
That’s all for now, have a lovely Winter holiday! Stay warm and cozy with those you love! Thank you for being a part of my artistic journey!
