Why We're Doing This
We have the power to protect and save wildlife and wild places. Here, artists make a difference. It doesn't matter exactly what type of art they make. Anyone's art can contribute to changing the world for the better.
We live on a spectacular planet. It is amazing, breath-taking, incredible. When I was growing up, every Sunday evening we watched Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom on NBC. It is like growing up watching Animal Planet. You begin to realize this is a very big world full of life and all forms of life are important, their right to be here is sacred. Yet their existence is seriously threatened. We don't have to sit back and let the worst happen.
As a lifelong artist and lover of all things handmade, I've decided to find like-minded souls to make a difference together, to create a community of artists giving through their art. Most of the website is devoted to these artists and the environmental organizations they support. And then there is the blog of my comic strips, all about living with nature. I want to combine my abilities with my heart and bring it all together to do more. I was inspired to create this website for Mother Nature. Because she needs our help.
