We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
― Winston Churchill
I was born nine years ago on August 19th, which is World Humanitarian Day. Coincidence? I hope not. Maybe that is why I have chosen to use my art to help support charities that I like.
I want to thank the people and galleries that make raising money for my favorite causes possible.
Amy Isler Gibson, from the beautiful Gallery at the Watershed in Eugene, Oregon created my first art show with so much support and love. Together we raised money for CHAP.
Next, Eeva, and her group at the famous Dragonfire Gallery in Cannon Beach, Oregon set up an art show for my girlfriends and me. It was amazing. Eeva had even invited real owls from the Wildlife Center. We had a nearly sold out show, and together we raised money for The Wildlife Center of the North Coast.
Right now, I am showing my work with the Portland Audubon Society, and I hope to raise money for all my owl friends there.
Please stay tuned in 2015 and 2016 for more shows and chances to buy my art and help the causes.
Proceeds from my art sales go to help these great causes:
is my family’s ambition to experience and learn more about how ART empowers, connects, and inspires across geographic and socio-economic boundaries.
Studio Everywhere will launch in August 2015, with a 10-month journey. We will travel across the Americas, Asia, and Europe, and invite children to paint and draw self-portraits expressing “how they see themselves in the world.”
As we facilitate Studio Everywhere art workshops internationally – including art lessons by professional artists Michael Orwick and 10-year-old Elena Grace Orwick – we aim to capture and share a compelling story of how art transcends language, builds trust for a stronger global community, and reflects a deep cultural insight.
