We situate art and love at the centre of our efforts to protect wildlife and natural habitat. We envision a biodiverse world fuelled by
love for wildlife and art.
We provide a space where people
can express their love for wildlife and art in support of biodiversity, creativity, and
living more sustainably.
We organize art-based fundraisers for select environmental charities dedicated to protecting wildlife and promoting more sustainable ways of living.
Hi there, I'm Tanya Markvart. I established SHOW YOUR LOVE! to fuse two things that I love and can't live without: art and wildlife!
I'm inspired by people and organizations who are passionate about and work tirelessly to protect the most vulnerable creatures and ecosystems on our planet. SHOW YOUR LOVE! is my way of contributing to their vital work.
I grew up in the countryside of Prince Edward County, the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg, Wendat, and Haudenosaunee peoples, and this is where I discovered my love for wildlife. One day, when I was four years old, I watched my Mother draw with her steady, graceful hand portraits of my sisters and me, and this was when my love for art was born.
I hold a P.H.D. in Planning from the University of Waterloo and a B.F.A. from Concordia University. My career has taken interesting turns, starting in the film & TV industry, then transitioning to the environmental sector. I live and work in the beautiful Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula area.
