About this project

BE SURE TO SEE THE FOLLOWING TWO VIDEO CLIPS AS THEY ARE PART OF OUR MAIN VIDEO! They show more about our fantastic Treehouse and our rewards! Also, see the important information at the end of this post about links to our Etsy shops to see our rewards, photos, etc. and we have many more photos and videos of our rewards in our Updates, too!

Our Kickstarter project is to share our beautiful and amazing art created from nature as well as our paintings, sculptures, collages and other forms of art with the world; we're hoping that through Kickstarter, more people will be able to see and collect our wonderful art and be inspired by it. We have created so much art because we are so passionate about it, that our home is filled to overflowing with our creations; we definitely want to share this abundance of creativity with the world. We have so many more ideas for beautiful art that we want to create.....we need to make room for new pieces.

Our unusual Treehouse, our main work of art for our project is made  completely from nature: flowers, branches, moss, leaves, driftwood, shells, stones and other fascinating materials. The Treehouse, which we created in 1993 when we lived in Washington state, is 5' x 4' and has 14 rooms, all embellished with little furniture, dishes, books, sculptures and other amazing details, also all created from nature. The Treehouse is very different architecturally, with odd angles, hidden rooms and hideaways, stairways that waunder in different directions, garden rooms, balconies, etc. This enchanting work of art is an architectural wonder, a tribute to the beauty of nature and an incredible creation of imagination and child-like wonder.

Everywhere that people see this amazing, magical creation, they are totally moved by it's intricacy, detail and beauty and are very intrigued by it. People from Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada and many other countries who have seen our amazing Treehouse in person here in the U.S. have all wished that we could bring this inspiring creation to their part of the world. We love sharing this beautiful work of art with others and that is why we are doing this Kicktarter project, to give more people an opportunity to see how nature can be created into art and art can be imaginative, unique and inspiring. We would love to be able to take our Treehouse to other countries to share it the people there as it would be so wonderful to show it more to the world.

We also are sharing the beautiful little furniture pieces that we create from nature as well as rewards for our project; they are very enchanting and amazing, too. Ranging from 2' tall to 8" tall and also made from natural materials as well as found objects, these pieces express the joy of childhood, amazing imagination and a sense of whimsy that is truely surprising. We have many wonderful rewards related to our nature art as well as our other art such as paintings, sculptures, collages and other creations. As we created art strictly from nature for over six years, when we started painting, sculpting and working in other mediums, including film, we found that we were still being profoundly influenced by nature and that it had changed the way we looked at life. The beauty in nature is very moving and truely touches one's soul.

Because of our love of nature and art, it is important to us to make each reward unique, one-of-a-kind and beautiful so that each person who pledges to our project will feel they have been given something truely unusual. We are very grateful for your support for our project; your appreciation of our art will inspire us to create even more amazing and wonderful pieces. We welcome your comments or any questions you might have and look forward to sharing our beautiful art with you!

Our reward goal is somewhat low, only because we want everyone who pledges to our project to be able to receive their rewards, but we would really like to raise a great deal of funds as we have many things we would like to do with all of our Art, such as participate in art shows around the country so more people can see our beautiful art, build a Nature Art Museum with our Treehouses and other pieces and also do a traveling art exhibit of our Nature Art. We would also love to be able to make more films using our art but would need better equipment to produce them. We would also love to take our nature creations to Europe and other countries and we would like to work with children (which we have a lot of experience in) and teach them art as well! So there are many other projects we'd like to do as artists. Your positive and energetic support of our Kickstarter project would truely enable us to develope our Nature Art and our other art forms to a much higher and more creative level, which we have been working towards for the past 21 years. We have had some success as artists so far but would really like to reach the other wonderful goals and dreams we've had for such a long time!

Along with our dream to show our Nature Art to people in other countries, we have always wanted to build Treehouses, somewhat similar to the ones in our videos, in other countries, working with the people in each country, utilizing the natural materials there and then find a suitable musuem or other place to exhibit the Treehouses in the countries we go to. So, your support of our project could ultimately propel our amazing Nature Art to inspire and bless many people around the world, which would definitely be a real dream come true for us and could bring happiness to a lot of people!

We are very excited about being a part of Kickstarter and look forward to hearing from all of you! It's so great to be able to share our art with so many people!! 

Also, be sure to visit our Etsy shop websites to see all the pictures and other information about the wonderful art rewards we are offering. The links to our Etsy shops are listed below the "Project By" section (here on our Kickstarter project), which you'll find after the Reward section. You can click on the links there and go right to our Etsy shops to see all of our rewards. You don't need to pledge on our Etsy shops or puchase anything there (unless you want to buy something separate from our Kickstarter project, which you are welcome to do); we just listed our artwork there so you can see everything we are offering, so be sure to pledge for the art you want here on our Kickstarter project. For the rewards of our cards, prints, books, movies and cd slide shows, (we are also offering a cd photo slide show of all of our paintings, sculptures, collages, etc.), we are offering unlimited quantities. If you'd like to pledge for our paintings, sculptures and other similar art, the pieces are more one-of-a-kind, so for those rewards, please email us which piece (or pieces) you are interested in and we will put a reserve on what you'd like, with your name on it to save it for you; (be sure to list your name under the pledge category here, if you want to support us as well). And lastly, for our shipping charges, they are listed at the bottom of the page for each item on our Etsy shops. For larger items or for higher numbered rewards, we would need to find out more about the shipping costs depending on where you live. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments. We would love to hear from you and are so happy to have our Kickstarter project here to share with all of you!! Please tell all your friends about our art so we can have a successful project!! Thanks so much!
