Artist Visits (Endangered Species Presentations)

I am captivated by animals and their wild, natural existence that continues to undergo the increasing threat of extinction. Indeed, I am saddened and concerned for all life on our planet, human and animal alike. So, I paint my pictures and give my presentations and share my deep appreciation for all we've been given. My aim is to engage caring minds and open hearts; to foster connection wherever I can. And, I get to feel hopeful because of this. To this end, over the course of the last several years, I have created three distinct series of paintings: Wildlife, Birds and Primates.

Artist Visits (Endangered Species Presentations)

I am captivated by animals and their wild, natural existence that continues to undergo the increasing threat of extinction. Indeed, I am saddened and concerned for all life on our planet, human and animal alike. So, I paint my pictures and give my presentations and share my deep appreciation for all we've been given. My aim is to engage caring minds and open hearts; to foster connection wherever I can. And, I get to feel hopeful because of this. To this end, over the course of the last several years, I have created three distinct series of paintings: Wildlife, Birds and Primates.

What happens during my 45-60 minute (Northern California) Endangered Species Artist Visits? (Age appropriate for everyone, 8 years old and up.)

The large original paintings from my Endangered Species series form the backdrop for my presentations, creating a powerful visual impact and a moving portrayal of the animals. My artwork, and the stories I tell, which include factors contributing to the plight of the animals and our most precious, most tenuous environment, encourage the sharing of thoughtful and creative ideas from the audience. Together we begin to consider ways we may be of help.

Questions, comments and reflections are very much welcomed during my presentations, helping to bring into focus our thoughts and feelings about what we've discovered together. For my younger audiences, the last segment of my visit includes a simple hands-on art activity, for which I provide all art materials.

And now, remembering these wise words of the most wonderful Jane Goodall:

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."

Thank you.

We are all of one kingdom - let us be kind to one another!
