Eco Art Supplies
As an eco-artist who uses environmentally friendlier art supplies, I am very excited to find this eco-aware art supply company on the internet! The company was founded by women who care about the environment.

Earth Safe Finishes has a great earth-friendly product line for art, crafts, woodwork, children's arts and crafts, including no-VOC varnishes, finishes, and paints.
What's a VOC?
VOC stands for "volatile organic compound" and is found in most commercial paints, varnishes, and finishes. It is hazardous not only to the environment but to the health of individuals who breathe it in:
"VOCs are emitted as gas from certain products commonly used in the home, which in high quantities can pose serious health risks. Products known to emit VOCs include paints and lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials and furnishings, office equipment such as copiers and printers, correction fluids, graphics and craft materials including glues and adhesives, permanent markers and photographic solutions." http://www.ehow.com/about_6452784_voc_.html
"About Nancy Burkhart and Earth Safe Finishes
Entrepreneur and co-founder of Earth Safe Finishes, Nancy Burkhart began her interest in developing a safe, 'green' craft and interior product early in her career as an educator with environmental concerns.
Burkhart and Arellano then set about creating Earth Safe Finishes, a completely VOC-free (volatile organic compound) line of paints and varnishes.
The company, and its products, were established by Nancy and her daughter, Jessica Arellano, a College of Natural Resources graduate of University of California Berkeley. Arellano helped develop Earth Safe Finishes products through her expertise in non-toxic technology and her dedication to the health of the planet.
Earth Safe Finishes is now dedicated to the development, manufacturing and marketing of high-quality VOC free products. Made in the U.S., Earth Safe Finishes adheres to high-quality standard, ethical environmental practices and unique brand positioning of their VOC products.
Burkhart and Arellano also established The Green Musketeers, an art and community organization devoted to the environmental education of elementary children."
RECENT ECO ART BY MAYAH:
"Original Art Prints" http://curezone.com/blogs/fm.asp?i=1944294
These two art pieces are made from small prints of my original drawings.
"Mayah's Mind" http://curezone.com/blogs/fm.asp?i=1944287
Stayed up all night making art on this Memorial Day weekend. Listened to NPR public radio--Veterans telling their stories of war. Wishing peace to all on this day.
"North Meets South" http://curezone.com/blogs/fm.asp?i=1941272
Eco MaG with a social conscience: Ice melting in Northern/Southern hemispheres threatens animal species and indigneous people's way of life.
This art piece is an example of what I call "shamanic art", when the energy of Spirit is felt very strongly and a message is given.
