TreeGirl, aka Julianne Skai Arbor is a photographer from California and the author of TreeGirl: Intimate Encounters with Wild Nature. She has been working on ecotherapy, nature connection and environmental art since 1995. She travels around the world to learn from the trees firsthand and photographs herself in intimate connection with the forest.
She says: “The aim of my photographs, in which I am sometimes almost camouflaged, is to create beautiful images to remind us that we are nature. My work is an invitation for people to reconnect with nature as a healing resource amidst the madness of our civilized world.”
Arbor has also taught college-level interdisciplinary conservation education for over 10 years. She holds graduate degrees in Experiential Environmental Education and Arts and Consciousness Studies.
