Selling art and jewelry for a cause!

I originally set up this new Etsy shop to sell my jewelry to benefit Art4TH and am including digital prints with all the proceeds going to The Greater New Orleans Foundation to help with the Gulf Coast fishermen who can no longer support their families.

A lot of people have been thinking about the animals and the environment--which we should! But many have ignored those who make it possible for that shrimp scampi or them crawfish. I'm talking about the fishermen.

Their lives depend on fishing. They take care of their families, pay their bills, and much more by fishing. Take their source of money away and they could end up homeless and hungry.

So to purchase art to help the fishermen or jewelry to help Art4TH go to

I was just thinking the same thing earlier. I feel so bad for the animals, but I also feel really bad for the fisherman and their families. I am going to your shop now to take a peek. Great thing you are doing!

That's a perspective that hasn't gotten enough attention...

Thanks for shining a light on it!
