Advice From an Elk Wall Art

Our card of the month for June is Advice From an Elk by Ilan Shamir.  Karen has created this wall art to showcase this inspirational card.

Ilan Shamir, the visionary author of the Advice From Nature series, shares his love of nature with us through his writings, art, and public speaking. Ilan's words encourage us to honor the Earth, honor ourselves, and to live "Your True Nature!"
