Collage with Linoleum Block Elements on Cotton Rag Paper
Excited to share my latest limited edition print suite, a vivid reflection of my transformative journey in the Amazon rainforest earlier this year. Hosted by Amazon Watch, I immersed myself in the sacred beauty of the Amazon, where one-third of Earth's biodiversity resides. Amazon Watch is an organization that supports Indigenous land defenders standing up to extractive industries, I am thrilled to have recently joined their board.
Moved by the resilience and power of Indigenous communities along the Tapajos River, I had the honor of meeting incredible leaders like Alessandra Korap of the Munduruku tribe. Her courage in the fight against corporate exploitation earned her well-deserved global recognition.
A highlight was visiting a Munduruku village, where the young girls sang songs about defending the earth. Witnessing the awareness these children have about the fate of their land was truly inspiring.
These collages capture the vibrant landscapes, connections with Indigenous leaders, and the incredible biodiversity that left an indelible mark on me. It's crucial for artists to amplify the Amazon's plight; the rainforest is at a tipping point, threatened by agribusiness, fossil fuels, and mining. We all will be impacted by what happens to the Amazon, the most biodiverse rainforest in the world which we share a continent with. Let's stand together for the lungs of our planet!
