Ms. Swit has devoted decades to animal-related causes and is a tireless advocate for animals and animal rights. In September, she was awarded the 2016 Global Wildlife Conservation Champion Award by the GES Africa Conservation Fund for her support of animal conservation efforts, kindness, compassion and generosity. This December Ms. Swit will accept The Betty White Award from Actors and Others for Animals, their highest honor, “for all she has done to protect and care for animals”. What many fans may not know about the multi-talented thespian is that Ms. Swit has been an artist from age six. ‘SwitHeart’ documents her animal portraits along with descriptive anecdotes about each and her extensive philanthropic work. Ms. Swit said, “I’m thrilled to see my passion for animals and my passion for art merge in a book that will help benefit and protect the animals on our planet.”

SwitHeart includes 65 full-color paintings and drawings. Proceeds from the book will be donated to charities and programs that are as dedicated, as Ms. Swit is, to ending animal suffering and cruelty.

“Lorette’s paintings touch us… the joy of the intimacy, the touch of fur, feather, warm breath, the awe she must feel at creating something so simple yet so unimaginably, breathtakingly complex.” – Mike Farrell

“It’s clear she has given her passion to the animals and to the arts. She makes me proud. But I still covet this woman… must be her animal magnetism.” – Ed Asner
