Giving Back

March, 2020
I donated this painting, LUNA MEETS THE COUSINS to MY OWN TWO HANDS fundraiser that benefits Sisters, Oregon school music programs.


February, 2019
I donated a painting of a wolf to a silent auction that was a fundraiser for Harmony Farm Sanctuary in Sisters, Oregon.

May, 2018
I painted a violin titled “Allegretto” for the Cascade School of Music fundraiser “The Gift of Music”. It was purchased during the auction on May 6th. All proceeds from the sale of the painted violins are designated to their tuition assistance programs for under-served youth in central Oregon. CSOM is the only non-profit music school offering low to no-tuition to students who qualify based on socio-economic need. They have a 100% track record of never turning a student away.

They raised close to $9,000 from the painted violins with proceeds going toward tuition assistance programs. The event in total made $93,000 for children’s music education.

It was their biggest and most successful event ever. Congrats on some amazing fundraising!
