My work explores humanity’s role in the environmental history of our planet through several series. 

‘Remembering America’s Coastal Cities’ represents the maps that might be made in five hundred years, showing the higher sea levels of the future (as based on current, peer-reviewed science) superimposed on coastal cities of the 21st century. The ‘Glaciers’ series depicts a helicopter view of melting glaciers and floating sea-ice. The ‘Fossils’ series represent artifacts that might appear in some future epoch. 

I invite the viewer to contemplate the beauty of the colors and marks found in nature, reflect on the transience of human history compared to the age of the Earth and deep time, and meditate on what is truly important in our lives.
