The Boundary Waters Project 

Northern Minnesota is home to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The BWCAW is a 1.1-million-acre Wilderness area located in the Superior National Forest. As an artist, I wanted to try and think of a way to give back. So for this art with a purpose project, I have been painting feelings/memories of the boundary waters or pictures I have. The Boundary Waters Project is a series of these paintings.  40% of all painting sales will go to Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness, which leads the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters. The Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters is leading the effort to ensure permanent protection for the Boundary Waters Wilderness, America's most visited Wilderness and Minnesota's crown jewel, from proposed sulfide-ore copper mining.
