Hi <<First Name>>
I'd like to show you a sneak preview of what is likely the final image in my current dark and moody tūī series that I've been working on the past year and a bit. "Forever calling me" speaks to an uncertain future for our resplendent tūī.
He will be making his public debut at an exhibition in Akaroa at the end of March (details coming soon), but for the next six weeks, medium-sized (28x28cm) prints are available exclusively on Forest & Bird's webstore. There are just 10 prints in this medium-sized edition. (If you're interested in other sizes, just reply to this email to enquire).
Ten percent of my proceeds for my bird art goes to conservation, and for this print Forest & Bird is the recipient. By choosing to purchase via their webstore, you increase that percentage even further because they also receive a commission. If you're unfamiliar with F&B, they are one of New Zealand's largest conservation organizations - for nearly a century they have advocated from the grassroots to the highest government levels for our precious wildlife. I've been a member and supporter for over 15 years and I'm delighted to be able to support them further through my art. There are now six of my tūī artworks available on their site. If you want to support the birds through art, this is a great way to do it! (And do check out the other gorgeous prints available at Forest & Bird by Hannah Shand and Rachel Walker).
P.S. Do let me know if you think I should create some more tūī artworks or if you have another favourite bird you'd like to see!
