Welcome to For Mother Nature
Working together we can save the remaining natural places on Earth. Here you can find talented artists and artisans supporting environmental organizations. Purchasing handcrafted items from them supports the arts AND the planet.
This is about artists so inspired by nature they pledge to support the work of environmental nonprofits. These organizations are on the frontlines of saving nature. These artists help make environmental conservation and protection possible. In this way, artwork becomes imbued with purpose, part of the urgent effort to save wildlife and wild places.
You can be part of this. Take a look at the participating artists, learn about the environmental work they support, and find out why artists are proud to participate. Are you an artist? Join us. You can change the world. Contact Cathy, founder of ForMotherNature.com.

ForMotherNature.com Special Recognition Art Award Winner 2021
“In Honor of Nature” exhibition sponsored by The Healing Power of ART
This award is for a work of art, in any medium and style, that most powerfully conveys the importance of protecting and saving wildlife and wild places.
The ForMotherNature.com Special Recognition Art Award is presented to Frantisek Strouhal for his artwork 'The Tree of Life'.
"Once I discovered my connection with Nature, the Universe turned into my divine home. My treasure and wealth are the burning sky at twilight, the blue halo of the ascending moon, the fragrance of the wild flowers, and the chatter of the birds. These are my home, the calmness and warmth in which my soul rest peacefully. As Nature’s patience is eternal, She is the one that is my real home. So that at every moment of the day, I find rest in my Mother’s divine nest."
– Artist Frantisek Strouhal
"The Special Recognition Art Award is about recognizing an artist who conveys the importance of protecting and saving wildlife and wild places. In Frantisek Strouhal's The Tree of Life, our ideal relationship with nature is simplified to its most basic state of open lovingness. Humanity approaches nature (as represented by the tree), with welcoming open arms. This loving attitude is what we need to save what can still be saved of the natural world. I think when people see this attitude expressed in art, it can help open their own hearts. And those who read Frantisek's words will see, as he does, that Nature is our home."
– Award presenter Cathy Berman, Founder of ForMotherNature.com
