I chose the Fernandex Firecrown as it is one of 43 hummingbird species that are currently listed as Vulnerable to Extinct by the IUCN. These tiny birds, even when confined to a tiny part of a tiny, remote island, are still threatened by human action and are critically endangered. I was inspired by the stunning colours of both the male and female birds.

Inspired by the natural world and the green spaces near where I live, my art is about celebrating and connecting with the landscape, its wildlife and its mythologies. I will be starting my third year of a Fine Art degree at Sunderland University in September.
