Jeanne Marklin is a fiber artist and photographer working in Williamstown, MA. She uses both her camera and her fabric dying skills in her artwork to bring attention to the environment and climate change. Social justice is a primary motivator.
“In the artwork The World Turned Upside Down the three trees are the view I see from my studio. They represent fresh air, bird homes and changing seasons to me. I love my trees! The elms may not last long, due to the Emerald ash borer. The maple is at least 40 years old and is rotting from the inside. I am grateful that I share time with these beauties and hope my artwork will make them live long after they are gone.”
