I love this quote:
"Look, I want to love this world as though it’s the last chance I’m ever going to get to be alive and know it." -Mary Oliver (October)
Look, if you are reading this- I am thankful for you. I'm thankful for this world we live in. I know we can make it healthy and wonderful for ourselves and our children and our neighbor's children... I am thankful you took the time to explore my work.
I am an emerging Artist & experienced Art Educator who is interested in the intersection of community & creativity.
I respond to, and am inspired by, human and ecological connection. My acrylic paintings on wood panel 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.
Experienced in the arts & environmental education, and inspired by the rise of the global youth climate movement, my work reflects my position as an Artist and Mother and reacts to a sense of urgency to curb climate destabilization for future generations. With a deep understanding that humanity will decide our ecological future in the coming decade, I venture a new, though sometimes unsure identity, as Activist as many other caretakers and children are now compelled.
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 .
