“…beauty and sustainability help us experience the essence of life and magnify our connection to nature.” - the artist
Just like the scent of the earth after a rain awakens our senses, so can art, beauty and sustainability help us experience the essence of life and magnify our connection to nature. An expansive outlook gives us a chance to see beyond ourselves and reconnect to our shared humanity.
My series, The Sustainability of Beauty, focuses on the climate crisis and the regeneration of nature. In a culture that prizes technology and data, I create visual haiku’s that make sensual connections with ecology. The work invokes the living world with vibrant colors, dancing strokes and sensual organic forms.
Inspired by the words of Emily Dickinson, I seek ‘that phosphorescence, that light within’ in my art. I illustrate complex environmental issues as symbolic calligraphy. I paint on paper with ink, watercolors and pastels.
During the last five years, I have completed marketing assignments for sustainability architects in San Francisco. My artwork incorporates themes and metaphors from my ongoing studies related to green building, renewable energy, urban resilience, water reuse, living within natural limits and inter-dependency of all life forms.
The question I ask myself is how can I inspire people to reengage with these ideas from a fresh perspective. In order to gain a wider audience, I explore how beauty evokes emotions that transform. The stories and visuals synthesize complex and varied forms of abstract ideas into tangible, emotional, and meaningful art.
By engaging peoples’ hearts and minds with vivid impressions of the most pressing issue of our time, I intend to spark a breakthrough of concern and conscious activism for the environment.
