ANTARCTICA BOUND!!!

When I was 24, I vowed to set foot on all 7 continents by my 40th year. I’ve got 6 in the bag, and am planning an epic adventure to the far-southern continent in November/December 2018.

As many of you know, I will be turning 40 on July 26, and will be celebrating in both OR + NYC. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at the gatherings. Some have asked about gifts; instead I ask you to consider donating to helping me complete this lofty goal. (you know, that $8 you were going to spend buying me a drink)

Or if you have any info to assist this journey, that is also greatly appreciated! I am currently seeking any suggestions/leads for grants, sponsors or clients. So if you happen to know somebody that runs a NGO or research project that pertains to Antarctica, I’d love to have a chat with them! I will be photo documenting the characters and capers along the way, and will share the gallery upon my return.

Instead of booking directly (which can be upwards of $10-20K), my plan is to fly to Ushuaia, Argentina and hop aboard a last-minute boat departure. This is BY FAR a more adventurous and economical way to go. Due to the guerrilla nature of the trip, I do not have specific dates. It will occur sometime in November/December 2018, and my projection is to be gone around 4-5 weeks.

Much love + thanks to everyone who has already given me support and advice for this once-in-a-lifetime trip, and to all of you reading this now ❤️

I’ll be coming up with other creative fundraising as the year goes on. Stay tuned =}

A hui hou!

Just wrapped up the Great Print Sale of 2018, and a massive THANK YOU with lots of snuggles and loves to all who purchased beee-ute-iful artwork =}

It's less than 2 weeks until I leave for Argentina and I'm getting SO EXCITED! This is really happening! Still have some loose ends to tie up, and I'm working on finding solid connections in Ushuaia (please let me know if y'all have any leads...)
My plan still is to get on a last-minute departure and therefore save a few bucks; I've given myself 5 weeks to complete my mission. Any extra time is gravy: Patagonia, Argentina, Uruguay, etc.

***This GoFundMe campaign will remain active throughout my travels - ANY amount donated receives a FREE print from Antarctica upon my return***

Stay tuned for the next stages and the continuation of my Antarctica dream! Love you guys XO

Hey gang! Wanted to letcha all know I bought my flight - heading out November 14. I have also booked my first 4 nights at a small apartment while I await getting on a boat. Ushuaia here I come!

The print sale is still going strong until October 26 - please continue to SHARE and thanks to those who have purchased. ANY image on my site is available, please enquire if you have a request.

I have also updated my website, and will continue to add new images in the coming weeks. Please take a peek:

SO GRATEFUL to all who have donated in all ways, including with information + connections! A little girl in my neighborhood gave me $1 the other day for my fund - my heart swelled! Just as valuable as any other support!

NO DONATION TOO SMALL! =}

Thank you all
I love you ❤️
