My Mission

My most important mission as an artist is to give back to the source of my inspirations. I donate a percentage of my profits to nature conservation programs. I am always looking for new ways to contribute to causes that fit within my mission. If you are part of a non-profit that supports the planet's ecological needs, and you are in need of artwork for a logo, campaign, or fundraising event, I would love to hear from you. Please contact me at info@bkelso.com.

I often come across websites with environmental action campaigns. Here are some that I have participated in. I encourage you to explore the possibilities of making a difference as well.
