Conservation

"I have long supported many nonprofit animal and environmental conservation organizations through donations of time, money, art, and art proceeds.  As an environmentalist and animal rights advocate, I volunteer for the SPCA and the local Animal Friends Rescue Project, working special events, helping with animal care at the facilities, and assisting people adopt animals.  I donate artwork each year for live and silent auctions put on by local charities such as the SPCA  and AFRP.  I also donate a portion of every sale to these and other charitable organizations.     "

The Following organizations I support by donating time, money, art, and/or art proceeds.

Humane Society

Animal Friends Rescue Project

Sierra Club

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA of Monterey)
