“The Animal: A Tribute”

I was deeply moved and angered by the recent murder of Cecil the lion this summer by a heartless hunter who paid to have him lured out of a preserve so he could shoot him with a bow and arrow. Cecil fled after being shot and it took the hunting team 40 hrs. to locate his body… Cecil lay suffering for countless hours. Game hunting continues as a major tourist attraction for many countries and a profitable hobby for the wealthy.

This print was done in honor of Cecil and all of the animals who lost their lives and who will lose their lives in order to feed the ego of man. The quote on the print is from Henry Beston and it reads:

“For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”

Hopefully Cecil’s death will not be in vain. Because of his death the issue of game hunting was brought into the forefront. I can only hope and pray the outrage will continue until the beautiful and pure creatures of this world are safe.


“We Stand Together”

This print was made in honor of all the dogs and families who have suffered because of BSL or Breed Specific Legislation. Certain municipal governments have banned certain dog breeds from living within their borders. As a result beloved innocent family pets have been taken from their homes and euthanized simply because they are of a certain breed. There are heartbreaking stories too sad to tell.

I have a wonderfully sensitive, goofy and adorable Doberman Pinscher/Rottweiler mix named Anne as part of my family. She is my hero.

The real criminals are the humans who abuse these innocent creatures. If you see or are aware of any animal abuse,  please contact the authorities. Animals are truly at the mercy of humans. Please be their protector.
