Conservation

"Beauty and seduction, I believe, is nature's tool for survival, because we will protect what we fall in love with. Louie Schwartzberg It is my desire to use my art to help people fall in love with nature. In the hope that they will use their gifts and finances to protect the world we live in.

The Wildlife Trust

The Wildlife Trusts work on land and sea, from mountain tops to the seabed, from hidden valleys and coves to city streets.  Wherever you are, Wildlife Trust people, places and projects are never far away, improving life for wildlife and people together. For more than a century, we have been saving wildlife and wild places and helping people to get closer to nature. They look after more than 2,300 nature reserves, covering 98,500 hectares, and operate more than 100 visitor and education centres in every part of the UK, on Alderney and the Isle of Man. They work closely with schools, colleges...

Connecting with nature through art

I will be teaching art to 6 adults who are dealing with issues of addictions and homelessness. The aim is to teach them basic art skills and knowledge to enable them to learn to paint in nature. My hope is that being in nature will give them an opportunity to see beyond their issues and find a world bigger than their own. It is my hope that they would also fall in love with the nature that surrounds them. For as Louie Schwartzberg says, we protect what we love.
