The more I learn of all the injustices forced upon these helpless creatures, the more determined I am to use my talent and passion for painting to help the cause.

Organizations I help to fund:


  • World Wildlife Fund
  • Galapagos Conservancy
  • Cheetah Conservation Fund
  • Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
  • San Francisco Zoological Society
  • Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania
  • Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
  • English Setter Rescue
