If there is one thing I hope for, it is that human creativity in diverse fields can produce mechanisms for ensuring our long-term survival on this beautiful planet. On a personal level, I hope in the near future to be able to get in contact with other artists who are interested in , for example, the effects of climate change and in the protection of biodiversity. My hope is to use the production/ exhibition of our art to create awareness of these key issues. For myself, my goal is that a percentage of my art sales be be used in support of various organizations/events , specifically those engaged in animal welfare. These issues are global and we can respond locally and globally. as regards the latter, it has been particularly heartbreaking to see the effect of the wildfires on animal life these past months in Australia.
