About the piece:
Elizabeth Ann Francis is a self-taught artist from Canada, her work being predominately informed by her passion for wildlife and conservation. This work depicts the Silvery-Cheeked hornbill, one of the many unusual and fascinating birds that make up the Bucerotidae family. Due to their unique method of nesting which relies on old-growth forests, hornbills are extremely vulnerable to habitat destruction and human interference. This piece is an ode to the quiet intricacies of this extraordinary species.
