|Artists For Conservation|
I just had the honor of being nominated the conservation artist of the month by Artists for Conservation. Artists for Conservation is an excellent organization that supports the conservation effort by providing a platform for artists to both express themselves aesthetically, and be able to financially contribute to the organizations they wish to support. This is accomplished by the artist contributing a percentage of the sales of their work to an charitable organization of their choice. Talented artists, both prominent and as of yet, undiscovered, participate as members through out the world. I am honored to be in their company and hope to eventually be able to contribute as much.
THANK YOU! Jeffrey Whiting, (Founder & President), and the Team at Artists for Conservation for considering me for this award!!!
