Student Environmental Photographer of the Week - Sinead Doherty-Grant

Hi all, every week, UTIES will showcase a student environmental photographer's, artist's, or poet's profile as well as a few photos, paintings, or poems by them on our Facebook page and Blog! Our first student photographer is Sinead Doherty-Grant

Here is her profile!

Hi, my name is Sinead Doherty-Grant and I'm studying art history.  Living in Canada, nature has always been an integral part of my life, the countryside from Toronto being a little over an hour away by car. Even in Toronto we have wonderful green spaces to enjoy.  As city developments increase over the world and global warming wreaks havoc over the natural world, it seems especially important to remind people of the world's incredible beauty. Through photography I wish to  recapture our relationship with nature, to admire its grand beauty and the vibrancy of its colours.  I believe that art can be a very effective form of meditation.  Art can also serve to enlighten and change our way of seeing the world.  

Oscar Wilde: "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

My other interests include portrait painting, theatre, and jazz singing.
