Emeryville, USA – September 2022
My mural celebrates the San Francisco Garter Snake, an endangered species that is endemic to the region. This unique and beautiful snake is sadly under threat due to a reduction in prey caused by competition with invasive species and human development and the climate crisis altering mating patterns. I titled the artwork ‘Tipping the Scales’ as a reminder of the delicate balance that exists between humans and nature, where every action we take has an impact (positive or negative) on the world around us.
