With all of my work, I want to convey a sense of urgency about the rapid changes in temperature, level of pollution, disappearance of native species and other effects of the climate crisis, which are increasingly changing our waterways and water sources. By using powerful and dramatic visual imagery that demonstrates how these changes are affecting the way we live and will live in the future, my goal is to encourage viewers to become engaged in their own communities on water issues.
For the past three and a half years, I have also written a monthly series of articles on water and climate change, entitled, “Imagining Water,” for the international blog Artists and Climate Change. The series highlights international artists of all disciplines whose work focuses on water and climate. The process of interviewing and writing about an entire army of painters, sculptors, mixed media artists, installation artists, filmmakers, poets, playwrights, novelists, dancers and others, is an inspiration for my own practice.
