Featuring Eco Artist Geraldina Interiano Wise
A bit down about climate change? There’s no shame in needing a bit of eco therapy! Listen to this episode about how eco-art is inspiring action and potentially helping to heal the negative psychological impact of today’s climate reality and our fears about what tomorrow will look like.
What’s Eco Art?
Eco Art—also known as Ecological Art—is created by artists who are concerned about environmental issues and wish to channel their talents into raising awareness and inspiring change.
Many artists are hopeful that their art will have a healing effect on our climate change stressed psyche. It makes sense: there’s more and more evidence that art can have a positive impact on the brain…increasing blood flow to the brain, enhancing brain function and potentially raising serotonin levels. These benefits don’t just come from making art, they also occur by experiencing art.
In this podcast episode, we had the opportunity to chat with the talented artist Geraldina Interiano Wise. She revealed what lead her to become an eco artist and shared her thoughts about how the 20+ proposed Liquid Natural Gas export facilities influenced her beautiful Jackson Pollock-esque creations. Her passion for creating eco art is evident and contagious. You’ll want to pick up a paint brush after listening and we encourage you to do so.
Follow the hashtags #GulfCoastLove to explore the work of eco artists who are working tirelessly to protect the Gulf Coast from the LNG export terminals.
In the meantime, we hope our podcast and the eco art we’ve posted below will offer some much needed eco stress relief.

The Climate Listening Project is listening to artists and activists working together in the Gulf Coast. The gulf is beautiful. Beaches and bayous. But it is also cancer alley. There are dangerous oil rigs, and now over twenty liquid natural gas export terminals proposed along the beautiful Gulf Coast. These huge export facilities will bring gas to the coast to ship overseas for fossil fuel companies, who will profit in the billions. Not only is it dangerous to local humans, environment and wildlife, but with climate change, why would we even consider this!?!
