As an environmental artist, I create multi-media assemblages and installations from marine salvage and other found objects culled from coastline beaches; I appropriate images - found and digitally manipulated- merge painting, collage, assemblage and 3D sculptural works while addressing issues of environmental concern from nuclear waste and nuclear weapons production to toxic spills and the threat to our world's oceans and marine habitat.
use what's already in your immediate environment, enlighten and inform; and above all using art as a tool for the advocacy of the preservation, restoration, or improvement of the natural environment; especially: the movement to control pollution.
