TEACHING

2018-24    La Sierra Artist Residency. Artist in residency and teacher. Santa Marta, Colombia 

Made illustrations for first and second edition of children’s eco coloring book Caring for the heart of the world.  Developed and implemented art workshops to teach children from villages surrounding La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Emphasis placed in educating children on the worldview of the indigenous communities surrounding their villages, animal rights, recycling, trash management and clean water.

Made Murals with kids from the Arhuaco Community of Kutunsama in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.  The murals were inspired by the design of the “Mochilas” which reflect their beliefs and customs depicting rivers, mountains and animals. Encoded in these patterns is the worldview that when we walk in harmony with all of nature, our path is opened and so is the path for all humanity.
