We've lost over half the world's wildlife in the past 40 years. Now is the time to rethink our ways! Using art and creativity, Asher Jay inspires, offers hope and encourages a young audience to change the current paradigm by taking responsibility for the world around them.
By Design I am a creative conservationist. Our inability to perceive what has been lost to us prevents us from valuing and conserving what remains. Through both visuals and a personal narrative I cast a light on what I've learned from love and loss. "Art empowers me to act in this world."
