I’m very excited to announce I am co-authoring a book!
Animal activism art at its finest!
More than 70 animal activist artists from around the world (all of whom are either vegan or vegetarian) are collaborating in order to raise awareness through their art.
All profits from the sale of the book and crowdfunding campaign will go to #Veganuary. The crowdfunding campaign will be launched towards the end of summer 2015, the book going on sale before the end of the year.
Please like our page to be kept up to speed as the project develops and share with your friends!

I wanted to share these links – these companies produce superb art supplies. If you love art as much as I do, or have kids, have a look!
If you’re looking for a natural range of watercolour paints you can´t go wrong with Colors of Nature.
The colours are intense and so natural – I absolutely LOVE them! I did a little series of watercolours inspired by these wonderful colours, earlier this year (this one’s called ‘Organic Browns 1‘).
Colors of Nature watercolour paints are formulated for high quality performance, whether you are an amateur, student or professional artist. Their watercolors have permanent to excellent lightfastness and can provide opaque to transparent coverage when painting, depending on how much you dilute them with water. Colors are made with pure pigments that create a wide range of colors when you mix them together. Their paints are ACMI certified non-toxic, and made exclusively with plant-based ingredients and mineral-based pigments, creating an earth-friendly and safe paint that won’t compromise your health or your artwork.
Our 2015 Vegan Art Calendar is on sale on Lulu! A collaborative project involving 12 artists from around the world. All proceeds go to the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in England. More info on the calendar website: http://veganartcalendar.weebly.com/
I am blessed to have (virtually) met and worked with all the amazing people involved in this project – they have openly given their time and creativity to what we all believe is an amazing cause.
It is my hope that this calendar not only raises money for Hillside Animal Sanctuary, but helps create awareness and opens hearts to the ideology of veganism.
