When art and environmentalism collide
by Meena Hussein
"I am a fine artist that does oil portraits and landscapes, mostly by finger painting. I create works that inspire and connect the viewer with the work. My landscapes have included a lot of mountains and snow, and I have always wanted to travel to the Arctic to document it on canvas. Over the past year I have read articles and seen footage of the disappearing ice. The feeling of doing something to help is strong, so i decided to start with this simple story about a polar bear and her cub."Check out his poem below.
