ART IS MY TOOL AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST
Art has given me the voice I've always been looking for as an activist. I am not inclined to march in protests, canvas door to door or even call my senator... but that does not mean I don't care or don't want to play a part in protecting our access to public lands, keeping our waterways clean and the wild places wild. I have found my wings as an activist by using my art and I look forward to pairing up with you or your campaign to make a statement.
LIVE ART AT FESTIVALS
I make art at Festivals and private events to raise money and bring attention to environmental causes. Live art is a powerful engagement tool that not only provides entertainment but also draws people into a campaign and exposes the creative process. I love interacting with people while I make art and sharing my own passion for the cause at hand.
This mural, For the Love of Water, was created over the course of 3 days at the 46th annual Carbondale Mountain Fair. Each board tells a different story about water ecology. The boards were sold individually with 100% of sales going to Roaring Fork Conservancy, our local water stewards. I was able to raise $3,250 for RFC by the end of the event.

I painted a 36x48inch canvas during the 16th annual YETI Tribe Gathering in Crested Butte, Colorado to raise money for the local trail organization, Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association. This painting was live auctioned for $2,600.
