ART And Nonprofits
I'm grateful for the work that I do and the beautiful places I have been, and I share my art sales with nonprofits. My list of benefits so far includes:
The American Cancer Society (2018, $1800)
The Sequoia Parks Conservancy (2018, $3500)
RAICES (2018, $2000)
The Nature Conservancy (2017, $1000)
Doctors Without Borders (2017, $1000)
Leave No Trace (Small Business Partner since 2008)
Because my art is rooted in my love of nature, I do an annual benefit series to support a wilderness nonprofit or humanitarian cause. In March 2018, I painted 42 small original paintings on canvas, and raised $3500 for the Sequoia Parks Conservancy; the official nonprofit partner of Sequoia National Park, which provides trail improvements, education and stewardship of our public lands. In 2017, I donated full proceeds from my first 40 fluid paintings to the Nature Conservancy. I have also supported Doctors Without Borders, Leave No Trace, RAICES and the The American Cancer Society.
The next small works benefit series will be in October 2018, nonprofit TBA. Follow me on Instagram to get updates. I'm always taking submissions for nature nonprofits for future benefit series, so please contact me if you'd like to suggest one.
