About

Creating Hope for Abused Elephants!

Trunks up and Welcome Elephant Lovers!
Thanks so much for visiting my shop! Since 2015 Arte for Elephants has been generating funds that we donate to accredited sanctuaries around the world that are providing permanent homes for elephants rescued from the circus, zoo, tourist and logging industries.

Most of the work you see in our ETSY shop is created by myself or if it's a photo print, my husband David. I consider myself a portrait artist that creates intimate portraits of ELEPHANTS! I strive to capture each individuals spirit, their fire, their sense of humor, or, in some cases of captive elephants, their yearning to be free.

Most of the year, David and I drive around the US in our RV putting up our lil' tent at Art Shows around the US raising money for charities working directly with elephants. Our current focus is on the Global Sanctuary for Elephants which is providing a wonderful home for the suffering elephants of S. America. We also work with start up sanctuaries across the globe.

As we meddlesome humans learn more and more about magical, majestic and intelligent elephants, the need to provide appropriate, permanent homes becomes more and more critical. Please know that your support helps us donate money (over $27,800 donated since 2015) raise awareness and advocate. But of course, you get an amazing piece of lovingly crafted art to share with your friends, family and space.

So buy something! Help us HELP them. Check out our website and see some happy customers :)
