The Matriarch

Charcoal

Unframed/unmounted. Signed

African elephant herds are led by their oldest, largest and wisest female: the matriarch. But nearly 90% of African elephants have been wiped out in the past century mainly due to the ivory trade. If it isn't stopped, perhaps artworks will be all we have left of these sentient beings.

With a passion for wildlife conservation, Erin is a young artist who currently studies Marine and Natural History Photography BA and draws alongside. In the future she hopes to use visual communication both through the lens and on paper to tell the stories of those who don't have a voice.
