Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

"Protect What You Love is such a powerful statement that could truly lead to lasting change if we all embraced it. This mural celebrates the importance of finding a connection with nature in order to appreciate and preserve it. When we fall in love with activities (like surfing) that are so directly related to healthy oceans, breathable air, clean water, stable weather patterns, and a healthy snowpack we can’t help but think about what we can do to protect the environment. Through my art, I hope to encourage more people to get outside and experience the natural world in order to nurture our love for it and to help preserve it for future generations to enjoy."
