I am so pleased to be working with Care For Wild in South Africa. I am painting their orphans! There are 5 very rough sketches nearly completed as of today. Once those are "done", next step is to do the sketches on watercolor paper and then paint. They may even get to be on 100% organic cotton on Born of the Horn products!!
Since I have not been there and have not met their orphans, I have chosen photos from their Instagram posts and will credit the photographer once they are completed.
On selected projects, I will be donating 20% to 100 % of proceeds or profits to them and will note the amount on the individual piece or particular project.
Sumatran Rhino " I Am Beauty" & Sumatran Tiger "Burning Bright" were donated to "Saving Sumatra" fundraiser on June 6, 2018 at Toronto Zoo. Both prints were sold and are now reside with their new owners .
Why rhinos? Why not? Choose a passion & where you want to make a difference. Go for it!!
I donated three prints to the silent auction that the International Rhino Keepers Association workshop held in February 2019.
Four 11" x 14" prints, "Leading the Way to Water", "Myth or Magic", "Soul Sister" & "Shy" were donated to "Adventure for Rhinos" fundraising event on September 17, 2019. All four sold & happy in their new homes! Congrats on a great evening!
For World Rhino Day, the image of "I Am Beauty" was used by IRKA for their fundraising event . It was a limited edition run of clothing with her image on the front, raising money for Sumatran rhinos. It ran from September 20, 2019 for 14 days only. It was a very successful campaign. Over $3,000 US raised for rhinos!!
Three prints were donated to IRKA for their silent auction for World Rhino Day 2020. "A Whole Lotta Love", "Soul Sister" & "Like Mother, Like Daughter" with 100% of proceeds to their campaign.
