About the Artist
Nothing commands change more than understanding the true environmental struggles we face. Our world is hurting. There isn’t a shortage of global conservation groups or topics to support. From deforestation to global warming, we know that these complex and seemingly insurmountable problems require humanity to stop and take notice. Now more than ever we face the negative consequences for humanity’s ignorance in technological advancement.

Master Contemporary artist, Johanna Wray, sees her art as a way to create a positive impact and bring awareness to the environmental conservation needs our world has. “Our world’s landscape is rapidly changing. With each landscape I paint, I hope to capture a piece of the world as I see it before it is changed forever.” As an artist and a teacher for over 30 years, Wray continues to share her unique landscapes and vision for a better planet through her international platform.
As an active member of Artists for Green Planet, Wray is using her art to give Earth a voice and create social awareness of needed change. This platform has given artists a way to unite together from all over the globe for this common goal. Environmental conservation isn’t just a way to encourage people to understand their carbon footprint or a better understanding of recycling.
This is a global movement meant to help us band together as a human race to save our world before it is too late. “We all have a chance to be part of the solution instead of the problem. We need to be committed to empowering others to be part of the change.” It’s time we each take the responsibility that is ours to help our world truly become a better place.
