As a silk painting artist, I have addressed the incomprehensible lack of care for our 'now fragile' tropical environment, especially in my home country. My piece, 'Oil Spill', depicts the effects of such a spill on the mangrove swamps. Our national bird, the Scarlet Ibis, which nests in the Caroni Swamp, and many of the other eco-systems on which we depend. Trinidad is in the top 20 offenders of the environment in the world! We can do something to change this fact.
