If You Don’t Know About the Artist Yet……!!!

Jambo, I am Samantha Taylor, Founder of Elephant Art Shop – a diverse portfolio of wildlife, community and environmental conservation watercolor paintings, greetings cards and T-shirts inspired by my impressionable childhood in Kenya, East Africa. My mission is to advocate urgency for addressing environmental and humanitarian challenges through creative expression and empowerment. The elephant is a mascot signifying strength and optimism, protecting their tusks, survival for the future and overcoming climate change. There are many lessons we can learn from the lucky elephant, loyalty to its family, and working together to protect and restore resilient communities for our future generations.
