Sara Butt – Quench the Thirst

Original, Painting | 60 × 48 cm | Framed


Out of stock

‘Quench the Thirst’ is Sara Butt’s first painting of an African elephant drinking and she wanted to show how water is essential. African elephant numbers have dropped dramatically and whilst this is largely due to poaching and habitat loss, these majestic animals now face another grave challenge, drought caused by climate change.

A love of the natural world motivates Sara to create paintings to help contribute to conservation of endangered wildlife and she has won awards for her paintings of British wildlife and equine in exhibition around the UK.
