Art With Conscience
I am a visual storyteller. My themes celebrate the beauty of our natural environment while warning of our existential threats. I address our over-consumption, science denial, conspiracy theories, gun violence, assaults on human rights, women’s reproductive choices, the global pandemic, and threats to US Democracy. My need as an artist to create order out of chaos is tested in these hyper-chaotic times. The narrative leads me through a range of media. I paint and draw. I construct assemblages dedicated to the use of recycled materials. I create ceramic objects. Through my art, I implore us all to act with conscience.
