August 3, 2010– Every month artist Annabel Ruffell identifies a specific cause to showcase in her S.E.E. – Soul Energy Expressions ~ Art from the Soul program. I am delighted to share that S.E.E. has selected The Eyes of Thailand as its August cause! This means that 20% of the sale of the highlighted paintings (one is shown above) will be donated to the film through our fiscal sponsor, the San Francisco Film Society.
About the Artist:
Annabel Ruffell was born in London, England and grew up in a small town called Ascot, not far from London. She has traveled around the world and lived in Germany, Spain, Australia and South Africa. These experiences have inspired her and are reflected in her art. In 2003, Annabel’s travels led her to Los Angeles, California and she now resides in Santa Monica. Annabel has been painting with acrylics and oils for a number of years now and continues to explore different mediums. Over the years, she has exhibited her art at many venues in London and also at a number of events in Los Angeles.
About S.E.E…. Making a Difference, One Brush Stroke at a Time…
“I chose the name S.E.E. as I feel that we are all souls emitting energy, expressing ourselves at any given moment and we can all choose what we direct our energy towards in our life,” says Ruffell.
“My mission with S.E.E. is to bring awareness and to raise funds for selected causes/charities that highlight people, animals and environmental issues. I feel it is of the utmost importance that we as individuals take responsibility for our actions on a daily basis and know that we can make a difference in our world, our community, and our life. People, animals, environment – we all share this planet and we need to take care of it as best we can, before it is too late.”
Each month S.E.E. selects a specific cause to showcase in the S.E.E. program. Three paintings will be highlighted and 20% of the sale of each original painting will be donated to that month’s charity. The August cause is The Eyes of Thailand, directed and produced by Windy Borman. Produced by Tim VandeSteeg.
Thank you for supporting the elephants and the arts!

P.S. If you would like to support The Eyes of Thailand but don’t have the wall space for a painting, please consider donating directly to the film via our web site. All donations are tax-deductible and will help us edit the film so we can begin distributing it by the end of the year!
Together we can tell the world about the plight of the Asian Elephants and the on-going threat of landmines. Thank you!
