INSTALLATIONS & WALL PIECES > A WARMING WORLD

A warming world calls for both individual and collective responses. As a move toward a more sustainable art practice, I have recycled my former screenprints into Growth Rings, and moved toward natural dyes and pigments in my work. Also presented here are images from a site-specific installation in a shipping container at the National Zoo in Washington, DC.
