The Kakapo is a nocturnal, flightless parrot from New Zealand. Only 210 adults remain, every one named and tagged, so I wanted the focus to be this individuals face, staring right at the viewer from the darkness. I painted them as the pandemic postponed my travel plans to visit them.

At 24, Elizabeth has painted with oils for nearly a decade, but drew animals since she could hold a pencil. Drawn to the natural world, she aims to capture the unique spirit of each subject. Her work featured in a number of student galleries whilst studying at Cambridge University.
