Humanity will decide our ecological future in the coming decade. This is an emergency not only for humanity, but for every species on planet Earth.
As an Artist, Art Educator & Environmental Educator, I am interested in the intersection of community and creativity. I see ecological connection among species as integral to Earth's comprehensive community. Committed to listening to scientific wisdom and inspired by the rise of the global youth climate movement, my perspectives as mother, cancer survivor and global citizen compel me to use my skills to represent species who have no means of advocating for themselves.
My acrylic on wood paintings bring to mind ways in which people, nature and objects interact and depend upon one another to form a complex whole that operates (often unrecognized by the participants) as a system.
My current work addresses Threatened, Endangered and Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) in Texas. 5% of the sale of these works will be donated to TPWD Nongame Fund.
