Artist Statement

Locating resource for this wonderful little lady was nearly impossible. Australian considers her extinct already....so I used the active resource in my garden our lovely little silver-eyes flitting about....and the botanical colouration provided by https://www.hbw.com/species/white-chested-white-eye-zosterops-albogularis for guidance. I decided that extinction or critical endangerment were too challenging, so I painted her with chicks, whether correct or not is immaterial, it is always about preservation of the species. I pray that she survives on Norfolk Island, with her babies...and finds a way to adapt and persevere...
