Artist Statement

This piece features the beautiful ‘Akeke‘e, native to the Hawaiian Island of Kaua’i. The destruction of native growth and certain avian diseases have caused a rapid decrease in population of this species. The conservation status was updated to critically endangered almost a decade ago, with a population of fewer than 1,000 estimated in 2016.
