Grevy’s zebra are only found in Africa. They compete with cattle for the little water supply available. Poaching and loss of habitat due to large urbanizing efforts are the main causes of their endangered status. From a population of 15K in the ’70s, the population has declined about 75% leaving us with less than 2500 left in the wild. About 65 Million people annually move to urban areas due in large part to violence and climate change, which forces immigration.
This piece brings awareness to the plight of Zebras.
Acts of repetition and patterning are continuous and very centering in her creative journey and come through meticulous, and purposefully drawn, symbols mixed with binary code (ones and zeroes) clustered, repetitive, and tightly organized.

Perhaps her nostalgia for how life was before technology comes into play, and is part of the reason she is so hypersensitive to present-day life circumstances on this planet.
