Like you, we have been deeply moved by the events in June 2020. We want to let you know where we stand, what we support, and what we plan to do going forward.
We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We see the long history of pain and trauma in this country caused by systemic racism. Violence towards the black community has to end. We support individuals and organizations who demand equal justice, an end to police violence, and affordable access to quality education, healthcare, and housing.
Going forward, 3 Fish Studios will donate 10% of all proceeds from the sale of our artwork to causes and institutions that reflect our values. All revenue made from online and in-store sales, wholesale orders, and licensing agreements of our artwork will go towards this effort. Giving back is now the hallmark of our business philosophy as we strive to use our art practice to serve the greater good of the community.
We believe art has an important role to play, especially in times like these. It serves to remind us of some of the higher aspirations of our common culture, including creativity, joy, and being inspired by the beauty of the natural world. We will continue to navigate through these extraordinary times of pandemic and social revolution with our heartfelt artistic expression.
We are deeply grateful for your support of our business these last 14 years, and are hopeful we will be able to continue to earn your support and interest during the challenging times ahead.

Founders, 3 Fish Studios
