Ecofeminism is a framework for eco-guardianship.It’s about women reclaiming our power to save the Earth. In my work I explore the rich cultural traditions connecting nature with the divine feminine to combat all forms of exploitation of our shared natural spaces. Art activism is an effective vehicle to encourage systemic communal change. We must shift the lens through which we view “progress” in our society to reflect more-than-human destinies as well. My style uses narrative portraiture, magical realism and macro photography as a way of raising awareness and compassion for environmental issues.
