The Desert Tortoise is California's state reptile and a keystone species in the southwestern United States. This amazing creature creates burrows that offer refuge to other animals and disperses seeds across the arid terrain.
This painting was created as a painted paper mosaic using hand-painted and embellished bits of ephemera such as local maps, sheet music, tourist information, and even old recipe pages. The intention behind my collage is twofold: to showcase the inherent beauty of the desert tortoise and to underscore our collective responsibility towards the environment. Through this artwork, I aim to draw attention to such species' significant role in maintaining ecological balance.
