We Are Not Research Subjects
We Are Not Research Subjects

12" x 16" Pastel on PastelMat Original sold; prints available in store Rats & mice are highly social, intelligent, sentient beings, yet they're used in virtually every area of research. They're slowly poisoned to death in toxicology tests, deliberately electro-shocked in pain studies & mutilated in experimental surgeries. Make sure your donations to health charities aren't funding cruel, outdated & irrelevant research like this. Use the list we've compiled at HumaneCharities.com.

Animal Protector

12" x 18" Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas Original sold Prints available through store You were born an animal protector, you just forgot. As children, we're allowed to see farmed animals as worthy of our compassion, but as we age, society teaches us to draw a sharp line between companion animals and farmed animals; yet each is equally capable of suffering and just as worthy, intelligent and loving.

Chamois: More Than My Skin
Chamois: More Than My Skin

12" x 18" Pastel on PastelMat Original Now: $150; prints available in store The chamois is a (tiny!) species of goat-antelope native to the mountains of Europe. Females & their young live in herds of between 15-30. If a mother dies, other females in the herd raise her young. Sadly, you may recognize their name as being the same as the chamois/shammy leather cloth used to clean grandpa's car. In the past, the animals were hunted for their hides. Thankfully today a cotton version is available.

Memory Metal
Memory Metal

12" x 12" Acrylic on canvas, framed Original sold; prints available in store In Canada, farmed animals are often trucked thousands of kilometers in all weather extremes without any food, water, or rest, resulting in the excruciating deaths of millions of animals a year. Imagine if the trailers were made of memory metal that retained the mental imprint of its passengers. Perhaps then we'd pay more attention to the issue of animal transport and push for its end.

Flying Fox
Flying Fox

12" x 18" Pastel on PastelMat Original Now: $150; prints available in store Bats are classified into two major groups: Flying Foxes and Microbats. Both share many similarities with humans: they have a similar skeletal structure (they have elongated fingers, not wings that they fly with!), are warm-blooded, give birth and suckle their young, are devoted and caring mothers and even leave their children (called pups) at ‘childcare’ as they go in search of food!

Rosie the Rescuer
Rosie the Rescuer

12" x 16" Acrylic on canvas Original sold, prints available thru store While scouring the web for art inspiration I came across Rosie the Riveter. I immediately noticed the gap created by her iconic raised arm & fist & figured I had a good idea how to fill it! The famous poster, which became the quintessential image of the power of women, unfortunately carried a pro-war message which needed tweaking. Add a piglet and some bolt-cutters and you've got a subverted propaganda piece of pure love!

Floyd
Floyd

Original sold Prints avail through store Floyd was being raised for meat on an organic farm in BC when we found him, starving on his back, unable to right himself. It was the filthiest farm I've ever been to - dead, decaying birds were everywhere. Although we'd gone with the intention of conducting a full investigation, we saw Floyd, dropped everything, scooped him up and ran like hell. We don't regret it. Floyd's spirit saw him through and he recovered fully. He now lives at SAINTS Rescue.

16" x 20" Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas Original sold Prints available through store We are all both the cogs of industrial animal agriculture and the wrench that could disrupt it. This series features people of all ages protecting and rescuing animals from that system. They are based on actual experiences or how we wished they had turned out. I hope these paintings will inspire and motivate you to throw your own wrench into the cogs of industry or be the wrench more often.
