As the URL suggests. I like Art. Actually, I love it and so I want to share that love of creativity with as many people as I can. By hosting regular Paint Nights, workshops and kids classes I am helping to build a more creative community. Helping adults and kids recognize their creative potential when many thought they had none is one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching art. With creativity comes innovation and with all that blossoming creative innovation we can help to build a better future.
As someone who celebrates the natural World through art, I am committed to expressing this through my artwork. I am also proud to support initiatives that work to protect our environment and the creatures that call this lovely blue planet home.
"Local" is also very important to me and I often donate to these amazing Whistler based charities' and non-profit organizations who help make our community stronger, accessible and inclusive; PARC (The Point Artist Run Centre), Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, Zero Ceiling, Whistler Adaptive Sports and WCSS (Whistler Community Services Society).
Sales of my work also support the following:
Ecologi - for each product sold, 1 tree is planted.
To help offset my carbon footprint for shipping and production of my prints, I have opted in to Ecologi. You can see my ongoing impact on my Ecologi profile page here: https://ecologi.com/andreamuellerart
From the Ecologi website:
It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse.
Our tree planting partner The Eden Reforestation Projects plant millions of trees around the world each month. We are currently supporting their incredible work in Madagascar.
Raincoat Conservation Foundation - 5% of all proceeds are donated.
From the Raincoast Conservation Foundation website:
Raincoast is a team of conservationists and scientists empowered by our research to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.
We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and community engagement to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach ‘informed advocacy’ and it is unique amongst conservation efforts. We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and their wilderness habitats.
50% the proceeds from every print of "The Trophy" ordered will be donated help protect wildlife through the Sheldrick Wild Life Trust . This trust runs the largest wildlife sanctuary with a focus on Elephants and the Black Rhino. For every $50 raised we can foster and elephant for a year. I have always had a love of all creatures. Conserving and protecting wild life has always been a message in my art work. By creating beautiful images of them I hope that people will be happy to capture them in their homes through the arts rather than at the hands of poachers and trophy hunters. Thank you for your support!
