About

Alana Lea is a voice for the rainforest. Born in the Mata Atlântica of Rio de Janeiro, Alana moved to the US as a baby. She cultivated her passion for the plant kingdom over forty years: beginning as a landscape designer in Puerto Rico, then as tropical nursery, plant shop and plant maintenance company in Oregon, leading to her present focus as reforestation project coordinator in Brazil.

In 2009 she founded Rainforest ECO Enterprises to generate resources for rainforest renewal. The iGiveTrees crowdfunding campaigns were launched to gather small gifts from the global public, allowing her to buy organic trees from small rural associations in Brazil, and give them back to the people who live in the degraded rainforest.

Her botanical art has been published in books, magazines and exhibited at the Bruce Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Smithsonian Institution and Museum of Natural History.
