This Term's Writer: Teresa Williams

Hello all!

I am Teresa Williams and I will be writing for the Green Medium this next week (May 22-29). I’ve lived in Edmonton for my entire life, and for the past two years have been going to the U of A. This past year I’ve been studying Fine Arts- I paint and draw A LOT of nude people. But at the end of this summer I’ll be making a move to Toronto to transfer to an art school there! Aside from that, I quite enjoy thrifting, dancing, and cooking vegetarian foods.

I cropped my brother out of this photo. I just thought I'd mention it.

Now, as a human, and a particularly privileged human, I’ve 100% taken advantage of the environment. I’ve been trying to be more aware of my environmental impact but still have a long ways to go. My writing over the next week will be focused on my consumption of art supplies as an art student and being a human who cares about the earth, but doesn't have ample financial resources. You don't need to be rich to have environmental awareness and more importantly, to act upon it!

Here's one of my silkscreen images from this past year. Many harmful, carcinogenic chemicals were used in the process of creating this image.

Thanks for tuning in and I’ll write to you all soon!
