Conservation

"My art is intended to raise awareness of the biodiversity crisis. In the last 50 years, 2/3 of all wild animals have been wiped off the face of the Earth due to human activities. In addition to creating wildlife art, I've been a wildlife activist since the 1980s.   "

I donate a percentage of my art sales to organizations like Animal Defenders International, Save L.A. Cougars (National Wildlife Federation), and the Center for Biological Diversity.

Print fundraiser for wildlife crossing for Save L.A. Cougars

The Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing is a project for the next century, providing a lasting benefit to wildlife for generations to come. More than two decades of study by the National Park Service in the Los Angeles area has shown roads and development are not only proving deadly for animals trying to cross, but have also created islands of habitat that can genetically isolate all wildlife—from bobcats to birds to lizards. The species most immediately at risk, the mountain lion, could vanish from the area within our lifetime. https://savelacougars.org/the-cause/

t's important to me to use my art to help wild animals whose very existence is threatened.
