The World needs Heroes

Super Heroes are so popular in stories. We watch them and read about them fighting for the good of humanity, vanquishing villains and saving those in trouble.
I’ve often wondered if our love of the super hero stems unconsciously from a need and want for heroes in the real world. Certainly we do need them.

We also already have them. I have met and heard of many human heroes. They don’t wear capes or masks, nor do they fly or use magic. They do heroic things in their daily life to help and care for others; to rescue animals; to clean the ocean; to make the world a little better every day.

Imagine if everybody was a hero...

‘The Hero’ is a painting inspired by the people who strive to help the ocean, by cleaning it, by caring for and rescuing the creatures within it; by educating people about the things that we can do and stop doing to keep the ocean alive and well.
