When I can't find the words, I turn to art. I have worked on this piece as the horrific fires burn in Napa and Sonoma counties just an hour's drive above my home. Hunkered inside my studio with filtered air blowing, as smoke and ash drift outside, I was feeling helpless to do more for those who are more devastatingly effected, and grateful at the same time that I am not being asked to relocate. My personal proceeds from the sale of this piece will be donated to help victims of the fire.

Getting to Know Linda

Linda Klein is an eco-conscious mixed media artist from California. She applies her passion for the environment to her work. “Many of my collaged tree pieces are created with bits of litter that I clean up off of scenic highways,” Linda says. “Each painting contributes to cleaning up our planet and turns ‘trash into trees.’” By repurposing litter as collage material, Linda dutifully reminds her viewers that recycling is key to a thriving future. The artist lives in Marin County, where she feels grateful to have inherited her mother-in-law’s large art studio that is always filled with light.
