One Love

“My desire to donate this piece ‘ONE LOVE’ is from a lifelong love of the wildlife. Those of us born in Kenya are so lucky to have amazing wildlife at our doorsteps, and to preserve this incredible beauty and wilderness is all of our responsibility. Visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust last December and seeing so many young orphan elephants that have been saved brought home how we can all do our bit. It’s amazing what the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has done over many long years and I feel so privileged and happy to be able to donate a painting that will help in a small way and be part of saving an orphan elephant.” Alexandra Spyratos
