About Us

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

We only have one planet, and we have a responsibility to pass it on in its best condition for the next generations to come. I believe that through creative expression…. artists can create a better world.

I am committed to sustainable best practices wherever possible in my art practice, supporting local and national businesses, and strive every day to enhance the possibilities of marrying creativity with eco-consciousness. All of the products I use are made in the USA.

The world is changing, our societal values and understandings are changing, and it is my hope that I can help influence or motivate people in some small way with my art and my #creativelife programs to change their thinking to live with a smaller footprint.

A Commitment to Sustainable Art.

My art uses sustainable materials, and uses sustainable reproduction and shipping practices wherever possible. I produce at least one ‘Sustainable Planet’ art piece each month, with the purpose of creating awareness to the current environmental challenges many of Earth's species and places are experiencing, and I strive to influence others to live more sustainably in their own lives.

The Origin Story

My journey into sustainable artistry began with two simple yet profound questions to myself: (1) How can art be created without leaving a heavy footprint on the environment? ….and (2) How can art and creativity create more fulfilling lives for people, and influence them to live better with less? These questions ignited my quest for innovation and a deep dive into sustainable art practices that have come to define my artistic process and methodologies…. And my core worldview

Live a smaller footprint.

I believe we should all try to live with a smaller footprint, that consumerism should be moderated, we should not strive for bigger – but for moderation, and that we should try to live with low carbon-high sustainability values wherever we can. 

Sustainable Sourcing

Central to my commitment to sustainability is my approach to sourcing materials that will not harm the earth. Art can last a hundred years or more, so we must think longer term than the next few years. The materials in my work include pigment paint, stretched canvases, brushes and related tools, and then art reproduction and shipping. I have researched deeply how art supplies are made, and have chosen USA-based providers and manufacturers that have embraced sustainable business practices at their core.  Instead of opting for conventional art supplies that often involve environmentally harmful processes, I have selected materials that are ethically produced within the United States, and are environmentally friendly. Whether it's reclaimed wood, recycled paper, or non-toxic paints, every element of my artwork is chosen with sustainability in mind.

Art to Inspire Change.

As societal values evolve alongside global changes, I aspire to use my art and programs to inspire individuals to rethink their choices and adopt practices that lead to a smaller ecological footprint.

I firmly believe that such a lifestyle not only benefits the planet but also contributes to individual happiness. I believe art has the power to heal not only the soul - but also the planet.

Carbon-Reduced and Environmentally Friendly Print Reproduction: In creating paper and canvas print reproductions of my artwork (including my Giclée museum quality prints), I have prudently chosen Inkjet printing as my method of reproduction. Inkjet printing is more environmentally friendly, as Inkjet printers require far less energy than other digital technologies, and use earth-friendly, water-based pigment inks, without any chemicals used in the printing process. Inkjet printing has a much lower carbon footprint due to lower energy consumption, reduced waste generation, and fewer emissions than most other forms of art reproduction. Additionally, with so many connected printing facilities globally through my contracted provider (Gooten print-on-demand), the art can be printed through a smart supply chain, dynamically routing and producing orders closest to you the consumer, reducing shipping costs and delivery/transportation carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

Creative Expression

Artists have a unique ability to influence and shape society through their creative expressions. Artists can help create a better world by inspiring people, creating a better understanding of complex social subjects through art, fostering cultural understanding, promoting social change, driving innovation, and bringing beauty and joy into people's lives. By harnessing the power of art, we can work towards building a more empathetic, inclusive, and harmonious society for future generations.

I believe that all lives have equal value.

That all men and women are created equal. That everyone belongs. That everyone has rights, and everyone has the right to flourish. I believe that when people who are bound by the rules have no role in shaping the rules, moral blind spots become law, and the powerless bear the burden. … I believe that entrenched social norms that shift society’s benefits to the powerful and its burdens to the powerless not only hurt the people pushed out but also always hurt the whole.”
