Kelly proudly supports her local Peterborough Field Naturalists Club with yearly donations of artwork.
The beauty of the kingdom of nature can speak to our very souls if we let it. My art is continually challenged, exercised and improved as I contemplate creation. For me art is not about imitating nature, rather it is about going beyond accurately recording details in order to inspire others to see and behold creation. The natural world is waiting for us with rich reward and joy as we observe, understand and care for it. All we have to do is take that first step toward a deeper relationship. Tragically, we as humans tend to be greedy, short-sighted and selfish. Thankfully because of organizations such as Artists for Conservation, this is changing and there is hope. When we develop awareness and get to know something, when we develop kinship, then and only then do we begin to really care about what happens. This is where true change begins. This is the heart and soul of conservation! ~ Kelly Dodge ~
