Matriarch was an unexpected vision. I initially had planned on doing a different piece, but as I drew out the shape I wanted onto my board I stepped back and realized I saw an elephant looking back at me. I truly feel a special connection with this piece, it's as if she was speaking to me and letting me know how she needed to be brought forth. This is her story and I feel that she needs to be heard for the sake of all elephants that are in danger. 50% Of the sale of Matriarch will be donated to the 96 elephants conservation group.
