Giving Back

Chris and Cooper with Watercolor book1A Special Place in My Heart

In 2015, I started donating a percentage of my monthly profits to animal welfare agencies in the Tri-Cities area. Doggies, in particular, have always held a special place in my heart. So, I’m very pleased to finally be able to donate in this way as it has been on my To Do List since starting up my ‘lil art biz. Many thanks to all of you for helping make this happen. 🙂 Area agencies on my donate list:
