'Tilikum a captive whale' painting (2016)
After watching Blackfish in 2014 I became intensely moved by Tilikum's story,
an orca whale who has been living in Sea World since he was captured in 1983.
This painting is titled 'Tilikum', it is 6ft by 4ft in size and is mixed media, selling at £2500.
If I manage to sell this piece I will donate all profits to Blue Freedom which is an international student group,
founded in 2012 by Katie Emmons and Abbie Emmons, who raise awareness and fundraise to put an end to the captive cetacean industry.
I support Blue freedom in their passion and dedication and commitment to make a difference and give a voice to the voiceless.
