We are in a crucible of human history where decisions about how we live in relationship to the environment are paramount. It's a balance within all of our daily activities and commerce of the world. Can we more sincerely activate our role as stewards of the environment? Currently, some of the last stands of old-growth trees on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, near to where I live, are at threat of being cut down. Even after elected officials 'promised' they wouldn't do this. These old-growth trees and their established ecology are vital to the life of the Earth's ecosystem. They can't simply be replaced with newly planted trees. I am using my artwork to help raise funds to protect these trees.

Why NFT art?
I've been making animations of my artworks for fifteen years and this is a new way that they can have value and presence in the world. The extra multimedia layers are meant to add to the expression and bring a unique quality to the NFT as a rare collectible item. It can be a meditative piece of motion art in your home. When purchasing this art, you are investing in these environmental stewardship initiatives, Tezos as an eco-friendly blockchain, the evolution of my art, multimedia digital art as a whole, as well as obtaining a digital rarity that, should you want, can be eventually resold in an expanding secondary marketplace.
