Through art, we are able to record the fleeting moments/good things in our life and appreciate them later again. Art forms – such as photography or painting –  when focused on nature, help me find inner peace and joy, and – more importantly – make me respect our mother nature even more.

I read and enjoyed the first two issues of eno in high school and I am stoked to now, seven years later, be involved in its publication. I believe the environment is the source of art and culture even as flora and fauna and groups of humans shift around the planet. Eno publishes art and literature which promote self-reflection. We feel out the ways in which the environment shapes our minds and spirits and that influences how we manage the environment.

When I am a bit sick of the same view of EH building, art is always a chill getaway. As a quote says, “The ‘earth’ without ‘art’ is just ‘eh’.”

Art has always been a way to capture my passion for the environment. Growing up I loved taking pictures of beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets, making sketches of animals and plants, and writing about the beautiful places I had been.

Art has always been a big part of my life. Yet out of three sisters, I was the only one who did not pursue an art degree. I chose Biology first, because I was fascinated by nature, and then chose Environmental Management because I wanted to help conserve it. But- what better way to conserve nature than by celebrating it through art?

Studying and working in natural resources has always drawn me closer to artistic expression because I am entranced with how art can relay metaphors across disciplines. Applying scientific principles to personal and collective philosophy is one of my favorite parts of being a human. Further, art is a bridge! It allows us to listen and feel and think in new ways with people different from ourselves.

I think the best way get people from different backgrounds to feel a deeper connection with the environment is through art. Even though I don’t think I have any exceptional artistic skills I have always enjoyed taking pictures of nature and showing them to people as a way to share and celebrate my love towards our planet.

Nature has always been my favorite subject to draw and photograph – there is an immense amount of beauty in our environment. I look forward to continue using art as a medium to view the environment from different perspectives – and sharing that with you all!
