“Clean Our Seas” is back!
Coming November 2019
The success of last year's "Clean Our Seas" Collection set me on a course that has truly changed my life in ways I could have never foreseen. First, I have found more focus in my work and the subject matter that inspires me. Second, the surge in interest in my art has allowed me to let go of my “day job” and do what I love full time. While that was always my goal, I never in a million years thought that it would happen so quickly! Third, and most importantly, the success of last year’s efforts to raise money for Captains for Clean Water solidified my mission to use my work to support wildlife and environmental conservation efforts. Since then I have created limited edition prints and original paintings to support ocean conservation groups, and most recently I have partnered with Friends of Rookery Bay to become their Featured Artist of the Year. Along with a recently completed mural at the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center, I have several special collections planned to help raise money for their programs, starting with “Clean Our Seas II”.
About the Collection
Just like last year, the "Clean Our Seas II" series is intended to support the preservation of our local waters. This year I have partnered with Friends of Rookery Bay, a volunteer organization that assists Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in meeting its goals. All twelve paintings were carefully chosen to represent fish species native to Florida.
New this year – in addition to the originals, the 2019 Collection will include fine art giclée prints and a 12-month wall calendar!
