Alisa Singer is a self-taught artist who has, since her retirement from the practice of corporate law, devoted herself to creating art to further causes she believes are important. Alisa was attracted by the inherently aesthetic design elements of scientific charts and graphs, and intrigued by the idea of using art to give them dramatic effect. She conceived the Environmental Graphiti project in 2014 and created the series The Art of Climate Change, with abstract images illustrating the science behind the critical changes impacting our planet.
Recently she partnered with The Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind to create a unique line of Braille greeting cards featuring contemporary art designs based on the pattern of the card’s Braille message.

Julie is the owner and Managing Director of The Stark Solution, a talent development and training design firm working to effect change within for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Julie, in her role as a board member of The Chicago Lighthouse, also worked with Alisa on the inBraille project. She was inspired by Alisa’s unique "art for cause" concept and works to connect Environmental Graphiti with any and all collaborators doing the important work of climate change awareness.
Ellen is a founding partner, and the managing partner, of Strategic Leasing Law Group, a law firm specializing in commercial leasing. Ellen does not want to leave the problems of climate change for the next generation and believes that if people were more aware of the specific facts of climate change they would be motivated to join the cause. She believes that Alisa's art is a powerful communication tool that draws people in with the beauty of the art and educates them with its compelling messages. She wants to see the art displayed in public and private venues where it can increase climate change awareness and encourage people to take action.
