I have been making art and music since early childhood in rural Germantown, MD in the 1970’s-- before the arrival of grocery stores, highways, or fast food chains. I took piano lessons, drew pictures, and went on hikes with parents and dogs in the vast seemingly endless woods. When I was 4 years old, I made ‘save the trees’ posters when I saw developers cut down trees in my subdivision to build townhouses. I knew that people needed to see pictures of what they were going to lose, in order to care about that loss, in order to stop that loss.
