If I haven't made it clear enough, nature and animals are so central to my heart that I have built an entire career around using what they give me to make art. But that has never been enough, and over the past few years I have had the privilege in becoming involved with the Wildlife Waystation, one of the oldest non-profit exotic animal sanctuaries in the nation. In fact, many of the feathers, quills and bones that I use in my work are humanely gathered from this haven for animals.
The Waystation and its animals have selflessly given me so many gifts, and now its time to give back in return. They need our help to open their doors to visitors, so everybody can experience the joy of holding a monkey's hand or standing three feet from some of the most endangered species in the world. This is a sanctuary, not a zoo, and most of its inhabitants have been rescued from unfit homes, laboratories or the entertainment industry. This means the animals are not afraid or unfamiliar with humans. It also means that we owe it to them to provide a comfortable, forever home for them now that they have reached a safe place.
Please help ensure that the sanctuary will be around for many generations to come.
