EARTHY ARTIST: Sometimes tackling a serious issue just takes the right perspective. Conservation artist, Linda Gass knows that well. Linda takes a slightly different and very creative approach to educating people about water issues in California.
Using a mix of maps, aerial photography, and sometimes a sewing machine, Linda creates breathtaking pieces that are both approachable and engaging. Her traveling exhibit, Shaped by Water, even earned her a Silicon Valley Water Conservation Award. The constant threat of a drought is always a reality where you live. Linda brings that reality to life reminding us all that water conservation is a beautiful thing.
Looking for your own creative ways to conserve? Here are a few suggestions from Linda: h2ouse.org, home-water-works.org/calculator, whollyh2o.org.
