Tilikum
Media: Pencil Crayon • Kraft paper • Acrylic 
After hearing the news that the Orca Tilikum was suffering from an incurable illness my first thought was - "we have failed him" - we have failed him and all other creatures like him, held in tanks too small to even barely represent their natural environment who have behaved in ways that to anyone who knows anything about animal behaviour would know this is a creature that is deeply distressed, deeply damaged by the life we have given him.

As an artist, I hope my art will speak their message, sing their unheard song, show their unseen beauty and majesty that so naturally belongs in the wild.
