Story Behind This Mural

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.
