Today is the first day of the Wild Auction 2022! This fundraiser is for Pacific Wild. Here is their mission statement: Pacific Wild supports innovative research, public education, community outreach and raising conservation awareness to achieve the goal of lasting environmental protections for the lands and waters of the Great Bear Rainforest and throughout the wild Pacific Northwest. If you would like to learn more about their approach to conservation and how they take action, here is a link to their Strategic Plan for 2022-23.
Instagram Takeover….TODAY (Monday May 16 at 2pm)
Check out Pacific Wild’s Instagram page for some beautiful, conservation-based content. They are worth the follow. This afternoon only, check out their story feed as I will be doing an Instagram takeover! I have a few exciting things planned for this… fun whale facts, an intro by yours truly and a few videos of my drawing process and… stop motion animation! =)
Wild Auction: 9am Monday May 16 to 5pm Friday May 20, 2022
Over 120 artists, businesses, and individuals from around the world have come together to share their passion for conservation of British Columbia’s wildlife. Contributions are from Brazil, to Norway, to Los Angeles, and across Canada. These supporters are donating 30-100% of the sale of their contribution(s) to fund Pacific Wild’s work.
I have three works available in the auction. Two seawater and ink limited edition giclée prints from drawings I created in Iceland and an original gouache on embossed paper contour chart based on the southern gulf island network. You can find these items by searching my name on the auction page. I am donating 80% of the sale to Pacific Wild (to help cover my printing and supply costs).
