"Regressive Increase"

With these pieces, I shed light on how animals of all shapes and sizes can come close to extinction because of our lack of conservation. These animals span from as large as a Humpback Whale to as small as a Poison Dart Frog. They survive in areas most of us could not. So their absence would not be noticed immediately. But that is also part of the problem. Many of us do not realize how fast these animals are dying out until it is too late. I want to use my art to give people space where they can admire these animals while gaining empathy for them. Hopefully, that understanding will lead to change.
