An educator by profession with emphasis in Elementary & Early Childhood, Louise Phillips has become an advocate for our nation’s forests and the Arts. Using her own professional talents as a painter and writer, she has been creating multi-arts programs, plays books and arts celebrations from coast to coast. Most are commissioned by organizations desiring a program for involving children in creating, developing, performing and appreciating the arts. Commissioned titles such as “New Century Creators,” “Garden of Dreams,” “My Prairie Home,” World’s Children Rock Garden,” and the latest, “Canyonland Charms,” express her philosophy, “that life is art, art is life.”She sees an opportunity to bring all of her interests together to promote awareness of the environment among children. In addition to her plays, Louise has created children’s gardens including the one at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN (above), as places for children to learn about the prairies.
