The tribes throughout the African continent have greatly enriched my life. It is such a privilege for me to be able to travel to these remote areas, share incredible experiences with them, share my passion with the world and take you along on this creative journey. I wanted to find a small way to thank you.
In July I returned to Kenya with two copies of 7 of my prints, both wildlife, and tribes. I am working with a local Samburu woman who is hand beading a leather border around each of the signed canvas prints. These14prints are being used to raise money to bring food to the tribes of Northern Kenya in November.
It is my hope, with your generosity, that together we can brighten the lives of those who live with so little, yet add so much beauty to our world.

Print Raffle and Direct Purchase
One of each of the prints above is for the raffle, and the other is available for sale. More than a print, you will own a very special piece of artwork that was hand beaded in Africa.
Once a print, it is sold, it is gone, but you will still have an opportunity to own one of the hand beaded leather signed canvas prints by making a donation of $25 to the generosity campaign. For each donation of $25, your name will be entered to win the print under which the donation is made. You may make multiple donations under one print or across all seven prints.
Donations- 100% of a direct donation will be used to buy food for the tribes.
Raffled prints- 100% of the profits will be used to purchase food for the tribes.
Purchase prints- the proceeds will be used to cover the trip expenses, such as fuel, security, guides and accommodations. The balance of the profits will be used to purchase food for the tribes.
The raffle will close at midnight, Pacific Standard Time on October 23rd. The raffle will take place on October 25th at the Sunworld Safari Offices. A different member of the staff will draw one winning name for each of the seven prints being raffled. The winners will be contacted on Oct 26th. I will hand carry these special prints back to the US and hopefully ship one to you by November 10th! I will then return to Nairobi, Kenya to begin my drive all the way up to the Ethiopian border, bringing food to the tribes in the remote, barren region of Northern Kenya; Pokot, Rendile, Turkana, Daasanach, Samburu, and Elmolo.
PRINT DIMENSIONS – 12×18 inches, leather beaded boarder 1.5 inches, total canvas 17×23 inches **
Dimension of print are approximate as the beaded leather boarder is being done by hand in Kenya and not by a manufacture. The leather, beading, and canvas, will not be perfect because this piece of art is being created by hand in Africa and not by a western factory, but this is the beauty of the piece.
**Shipping cost is not included in the cost of the print or with raffle donations. The shipping cost will be quoted upon receiving shipping instructions from the buyer or winner of the print.
Logistical Support for Northern Kenya is provided by Sunworld Safaris.
Accommodations at Lake Baringo, home to the Potok, provided by Island Camp
