About

Scientific research and data fuel the content of my artwork. I create pieces to raise awareness about interesting and important environmental topics.

The key topic in my portfolio is Climate Change data: melting glaciers, rising sea level, threatened species. I hope to cover both positive and negative issues which depict the reality of our current ecosystem.

I view art as a uniquely articulate lens: through it I can address environmental concerns to raise awareness and inspire people to take action.

    I am 23 and currently live in Maine. I am an Artist and a Scientist; I graduated from the University of Maine in December 2015 with a double major in Studio Art and Earth Science. I have always loved the outdoors and want to use my creative skills to communicate information about extreme environmental issues with a broad audience. I have assisted with research on the mountain glaciers of Washington, in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, and over the rolling hills and carved cirques of the Falkland Islands. I see nature as a work of art, and the origin of my observational skills. I enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing, reading, running, camping, and spending time with my friends and family. I make art inspired by all of these experiences. I am available for collaborations, commissions, and discussions.
