In 2011, I came across a National Geographic article entitled Orphans no More, from which I learned of the extraordinary work of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. This organization was the first in the world to successfully rehabilitate orphaned and traumatized baby elephants. Captivated by the story, I felt within me a burning desire to contribute to the cause. How, I did not know, but as an artist of sorts, a drawing seemed a good place to start. So, I picked up a pencil and spent two years drawing roughly 205,000 tiny shapes that to my eyes resemble the texture of an elephant.
