Wall Art for You Raises Critical Covid-19 Funding

Triage: Bahamian Starfish, Clarity III, & Little Fish I printed on aluminumOver the years my photography has expanded to include more than food photography. I have spent the last several years taking ocean-oriented photos in the Bahamas, Greece, Mexico and California. Now many of these photos are available as wall art to brighten your home.
Note: We are still working on our software. Currently the prints show up in the gallery priced at $0. Sadly this is not true. To see correct pricing click on an individual print and prices, formatting, sizing and framing options will appear for you to select from.
A Way to Help During This PandemicTo kick off my new wall art line I want to give back to the coronavirus frontline healthcare workers who are dedicated to keeping us safe and healthy. I discovered Frontline Foods, a wonderful non-profit organization that feeds crisis workers through meals procured from local restaurants.
Healthcare Workers Need Our HelpHealthcare workers are putting their life on the line everyday as they work to treat coronavirus patients and keep the rest of us safe. In areas of the U.S. that have been hit hard by the coronavirus, these heros have worked round the clock and put their life at risk every time they take care of a covid19 patient. Even in cities where coronavirus has been less active, hospital workers are at the ready to take care of whatever comes their way. As coronavirus cases continue to rise, these healthcare workers are the true safety net for all of us.
Restaurant Workers Need Our Help TooThe restaurant industry has been hard-hit by the coronavirus. Many restaurants have shut their doors, while others struggle to stay open with take-out and limited seating options. Even though restaurants are beginning to open up, they are a long way from operations as usual. Now many restaurants are working with Frontline Foods to feed their local healthcare workers.
How Frontline Foods WorksFrontline Foods raises money through donations. They use the donations to purchase healthy meals for frontline healthcare workers from local restaurants. The restaurants prepare and deliver the individually packaged meals to healthcare workers. The result is every dollar donated to Frontline Foods goes to support both healthcare and restaurant workers.
How Purchasing Wall Art Supports Frontline FoodsThere are two ways your wall art purchases contribute to Frontline Foods:
- I will donate 100% of the profits generated from my wall art sales to Frontline Foods. This is my way of contributing. I am not looking to make a profit for myself. Rather I am looking for a way to magnify the donations I could make by myself. When you purchase one of my photos, you magnify my contribution.
- For the first $4,000 in wall art sales, 100% of the purchase price will be donated to Frontline Foods. My husband and I will personally pay for printing and framing costs for the first $4000 in sales with a personal donation. This is our way of magnifying your donation.
What You Personally Get When You Purchase One of My Wall Art Photos
- You get a beautiful ocean-oriented print for your home. Travel is no longer an option for most of us and with all of the time we are spending sheltering in place it is a great time to enhance your home and bring some of the natural world inside. For me, these pictures are a window to the outside world and an inspiration as to what waits for us when we finally get covid-19 under control. My prints help you take a virtual vacation from your home.
- You make a contribution to frontline healthcare workers as well as provide support for restaurant workers. We need to support both of these communities to keep us safe, nourished and well. Our healthcare workers are critical to us all and they need and deserve our support. Likewise, our restaurant workers also need our help. I hate to think of a post-covid-19 world without the rich variety of restaurants we have until recently taken for granted.
