Flowering Heart Project

Courageous Conversation with Ursula Dutkiewicz

Welcome to another Courageous Conversation ... what a joy it is to be speaking with dedicated treesister, ceramic artist, and photographer, Ursula Dutkiewicz. Here's a little more about Ursula: Ursula is a passionate TreeSister and Nature loving creative. She has been working for thirty years as a ceramic artist and believes that having her hands in the living clay of Mother Earth has led her to feel deeply connected to the planet. Conscious of her use of resources she has wanted to find ways to give back to the planet and has kept asking the question ‘how can I use my art as an instrument for change? She is an Artist partner, Water carrier, monthly donor and Heartwood Volunteer and has been holding space for TreeSisters to grow in Australia for many years. You can find out more about Ursula's art at www.ursuladutkiewicz.com TreeSisters is a global grassroots network dedicated to restoring the Earth through restoring our forests and the feminine.

As well as spreading love and gifting from the heart artist Ursula Dutkiewicz has extended the reach of her Flowering Heart project to now plant trees. She is a passionate long time member of TreeSisters and each heart made with love carries the intention to re-robe and restore the planet in green. One heart purchased at twenty Australian dollars funds the planting of twenty + trees in the tropics depending on the exchange rate and also the current tree planting costs which can fluctuate. By using her hearts and collaborating with other artists she hopes to plant thousands of trees. The first of these is the ‘Tree is Life’ travelling art installation created with fellow artists Tessa Wylde, Karen Hopkins, Xenica Douglas and Deborah Punton.
