Resilience: Art, Nature, and Community

This modern world and our uncertain future can often leave us feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes, the daily challenges we face make us feel like we can’t contribute to anything meaningful.  

One of the most powerful actions I focus on is building resilience. It gives us the ability to make ourselves, the planet and our communities more adaptable in the face of adversity. By strengthening resilience, I can look forward with more courage and optimism.

In my life and creative practice, I explore the powerful interconnection of art, nature, and community to help me build resilience.
What if we all helped build resilience within ourselves, our communities, and our environment?
What actions can contribute to this future?
