My project entails traveling to the sanctuary to "run with the pack" on a photographic hike. For a few hours I will leave the hustle and bustle of human life to hike, run, and connect with one of my favorite predators. After which I will pour over the assumedly hundreds of photos and pick the best to create from. I will then donate back to the sanctuary, both 10% of all sales of works done featuring their wolves, and a limited edition print or Artist's Proof of their choosing for their use at fundraising.
Over the years I have had the pleasure, and honor, to donate work and time to causes I respect and cherish. One of the most dear to me is Ducks Unlimited, Canada. Our wetlands are so very important to me. They are a home to a multitude of flora and fauna, act as a fresh water filter, and provide some beautiful spaces to enjoy. By extension I also co-facilitated an art show to benefit a DU member in Bearverlodge, AB. Not only did she take in orphaned wildlife, she also had a beautiful wetland on which a mated pair of whooping cranes nested every year. The show was put on in her honor and 50% of all proceeds was given to her directly. Other conservation organizations have received donations of work, such as Trout Unliimited, The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and the Edmonton Valley Zoo - Red Panda Exhibit. Today my priorities are leaning to clean oceans, and fighting South American deforestation and I am currently researching ways in which I can help.
