Explore. Connect. Communicate.
When I sit at the base of a glacier and sketch the terminus to map its recession, climate change is no longer an abstract concept. It’s very, very real. And with the work I make, I strive to inspire others to feel this personal connection, too. That’s how environmental stewardship arises— when people feel something deeply enough to spur them into action.
We often think of endangered species as the charismatic megafauna of the jungle or the Arctic. I see a landscape that is slipping away just as rapidly. When I paint a place I am a documentarian, witness, participant, and advocate. The few remaining wild spaces and open landscapes do not have a voice or a seat at the negotiation table. I aim to be that voice, because when we lose these landscapes, I believe we also lose a little part of ourselves. We need these wild places to visit, to explore, to remember our place in the world. The light on this landscape is changing, and I’m here to tell that story.
