Celebrating Forest Week

It’s a beautiful September day… The sun is shining and the air is clear with that crisp, autumn feeling… The leaves are changing colours and starting to fall… Change is in the air. I think this may be my favourite time of year!

It’s also National Forest Week and I’m celebrating the forest and my love of nature!

I live in a large city, but I’m fortunate to live close to the ocean and forest so that within a few minutes, I can be hiking in the forest or swimming in the sea… Nature is what fills me up, inspires and nurtures me!

And it’s the beauty of nature that inspires my art and creativity.

Both visually and symbolically, the forest provides a powerful and beautiful subject, stirring a deeply rooted connection with nature. My current work, Forest Tales, is a series of paintings with a story to tell, each painting taking the viewer on a fairytale journey into their imagination, and awakening their connection to spirit through the beauty of art and nature.

There are many different ways we can protect and support our environment. One way I decided to give back is to donate $1.00 for every product sold (that’s one tree planted!) and donate $100 for every large painting sold (that’s 100 trees planted!). It’s one small way I can contribute to protecting and nurturing nature.

The earth is what we all have in common.
