“For the Poppy Mural, I wanted to bring attention to a cultural lack of sustainable practices by contrasting the natural beauty of a California poppy with a pile of actual trash surrounding it. Both uplifting and saddening, the goal of the imagery is to inspire environmental change. The mural theorizes on a world if the mindset of sustanability isn’t more widely embraced?”

“The black arts collective is an interdisciplinary arts club dedicated to the production of black art and strengthening the community of black artists. The club puts on a variety of events, productions, and projects that link together the community of black students on campus.”
"I wanted to show important and recognizable images that represent sustainability and eco-friendly practices, all surrounding a glowing Tree of Life symbol."
