I’m excited to say that I have been chosen as an Artist in Residence at Denali National Park this coming summer! Ten days in a remote cabin for inspiration and to produce work that has an emphasis on Safety with Wildlife. Couldn’t think of a better way to bring my artist and naturalist work together.
“Celia Garland is an artist and naturalist with a serious case of wanderlust. A traveler since the age of eleven when her family hiked the Appalachian Trail, Celia’s art has always been infused with her experiences of the natural world. Whether in Alaska or Australia, Canada or New Caledonia, nature inspires her art. That art, in turn, expresses her love of wild places and concern for the natural world. The quote she lives by is “In the end, we will protect only what we love, we will love only what we understand, we will understand only what we are taught” ~ Baba Dioum
