Environmental degradation is a huge concern to me and has been vocalized in my work for as long as I can remember, so that's why it makes perfect sense for me to donate to FUF. I want to support people who are making a difference on the frontlines of this fight.

With this particular piece, I have depicted elements of nature - armored horses and birds - all being drawn to a tree that has had its limbs removed. But the tree is still succeeding—beautiful and growing. Man has intervened, the armored horses are bound to the tree, used as mechanisms of war and the tree has been pruned. The horses are struggling hard to get free, and a hopeful conclusion is that they probably will. The birds flying around the scene are completely free of man's interventions. However, everything is connected in nature and is affected by man directly or indirectly. The tree is a symbol of the resilience of nature.
