My wild, radiant paintings spring from my heart's deep love and gratitude for this beautiful planet that gives such shimmering life to all. I love to imagine that the EarthShimmers print or card that you send to someone you love- or that you place in your own home- reminds you of all the ways this incredible, freely-given gift of our planet's Beauty warms and inspires you.

For me it's as if the liveliness of the Earth constantly weaves a blanket of Beauty, sparkling here as a hummingbird in the desert, glowing there as the rhythm of the ocean, always present and continually shape-shifting in tendrils of overarching wholeness.

I have reproduced my paintings as card sets and as prints on archival quality, sustainably produced paper, with options for matting and framing.

EarthShimmers is part of the expanding grass roots work of our time in shifting to a culture that chooses to be in service to the Larger world and the potential for a sweeter, mutually-enhancing future for all the Earth's children. I donate from the shop's profit to the World Wildlife Fund, to the Sea Turtle Conservancy, and to the School of Lost Borders. The remainder is building a nest egg to start Phoenixes Rising, a community focused land-based school serving a diverse cross-section of young people with council, sustainable living, rites of passage and critical inquiry at its core.

The World Wildlife Fund is the world’s leading conservation organization, building a future in which people live in harmony with nature. The Sea Turtle Conservancy's worldwide programs conserve and recover sea turtle populations through research, education, advocacy and protection of their natural habitats.

The School of Lost Borders offers vision fast and rites of passage training which cultivate self-trust, responsibility, and understanding for young people and for adults about ones' unique place within society and the natural world.

Welcome to EarthShimmers and what is a grand experiment for me: the walking of my wild art out into the world. You will see that I have a profound love and concern for living responsibly on this beautiful Earth, and making a difference towards a sweeter, kinder future especially for all the Earth's children (human and all the others!).

I donate a portion of each sale to 3 non-profits whose work is close to my heart in moving towards that future: World Wildlife Fund, the Sea Turtle Conservancy, and The School of Lost Borders.

I will ship as soon as your payment clears via standard shipping. I insure the prints, whether framed or simply matted.
