ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
I have always loved and felt connected to nature, but since I started practicing mindfulness and meditation in nature, this revived connection has touched my heart and soul deeply. I found a special Chestnut tree that inspired me to create a series called Tree of Your Soul. Followed by the Four Seasons and the drawings of the different Rainforest of the World.
It’s really heartbreaking what some people are doing to the Amazon Rainforest. The Amazon is one of the most important Rainforests in the World. It is the home of many animal and plant species, and indigenous tribes too. We must protect it from deforestation and restore it. Personally and as an artist, I feel compelled to do something that invites action.
