Artist Turns Oils into Charitable Giving

Chad Little makes mark on nonprofits

Paradise Valley artist Chad Little left his entrepreneurial role in the tech world to focus on his passion, art. His oil paintings, described as “abstract impressionism,” are making their mark on the local nonprofit landscape as the proceeds from each piece directly impact a charity near and dear to his and his wife’s hearts.

Through Nov. 1, 50 percent of proceeds from Little’s art will benefit the Arizona Humane Society. Little and his wife, Sophia, also will host a Fall Art Show in early November to further benefit AHS. That means critical funding to assist the more than 17,000 sick, injured and abused pets that receive medical care at AHS each year.

As a lifelong animal lover and advocate, Sophia Little is the founder and owner of Little Red Collar, a dog apparel company specializing in dog accessories. For every collar or leash purchased, they donate a red Little Red Collar to a shelter dog waiting for his or her new home.

“As the proud parents of three rescue dogs, we are driven to advocate for homeless animals in our community,” says Sophia.

“It is important to us that we support organizations we believe in and as AHS continues to combat pet homelessness in the Valley, we will continue to support those efforts, one painting and one collar at a time,” Chad adds.
