“Washington 2003-2019”

Despite repeated evictions from university studios, and several moves taking me and my family from Vashon Island, to Seattle and finally to Tacoma, my creative work has continued unabated. Environmental issues continue to be of great concern, particularly in relation to the meltdown in Fukushima and the climate collapse. Antidotes to dystopic thinking emerge as well as a series that examines the plight of refugees and ways that we can deal with fears of extinction. Works on paper that explore dreams and nightmares have surfaced continually, as well as images that depict the rise in resistance, and the desire to heal trauma.
