ABOUT THE ART
"I created this print in partnership with ParksCalifornia, the official non-profit partner of California State Parks that works at the intersection of resource stewardship and equitable access. The print features an illustration of the beautiful Russian River and iconic Russian Gulch Bridge in northern California. I am lucky to have a system of parks in California preserved for public enjoyment and are valued landmarks. I think it is essential to keep some spaces dominated by nature for the sake of the environment and citizens’ quality of life. Parks California helps to make parks more welcoming, inclusive, and climate-resilient. Proceeds from this print will help strengthen parks for the future, reducing barriers to access and working to ensure that all people feel welcome when they are in parks. Thanks for caring!"
