About Me:I am an environmental artist creating mixed-media assemblages and installations from marine salvage and other found objects culled from coastline beaches; appropriating images - found and digitally manipulated - merging painting, collage, assemblage and sculptural works while addressing issues of environmental concern.
Exhibit change by:
I have created a body of work “Pacific Series: Environmental Assemblages,” and recently published a book illustrating my ongoing desire to inspire a new way of seeing and a new way of thinking in the hopes of encouraging others to be vigilant stewards in protecting the state of the oceans and our global environment for future generations.
I'm passionate about:
I am passionate about being the change – walking the talk and living the kind of life – that I would like to see in the world to ensure a better, cleaner, safer place now and for future generations. For the past 15 years, I have not owned or driven a car. My main mode of transportation is bicycling, walking or mass transit. Environmental alarms have long been ringing with warning signs of over-population, consumerism, global warming, and deterioration of terrestrial and marine habitats. Changing my own lifestyle and sounding these alarms as an activist and artist is my passion and the subject matter of my art practice from nuclear weapons production and nuclear waste to toxic oil spills and the threat to air and water quality of our oceans and marine habitats.
