Returning and regrouping from my artist residency at Skopelos Art Foundation on Skopelos Island in Greece, supported through a university grant. It was a beautiful printmaking studio and location on the Aegean Sea. While there I focused on local environmental concerns, sea plastic. Artwork was created in response to the sea glass and sea plastic that I collected while walking the rock beach every evening.

I'm on sabbatical this semester at PSU. Looking forward to upcoming art residencies in Greece and back to Iceland. Busy working in the studio on new work. Currently working on collaboration prints with Fawn Atencio at Songlines Press.
Finally got to see these floating icebergs come to life in my installment, Iceberg Alley, in this year's PSU Art Faculty exhibit FRESH. The iceberg shapes were created when I was at NES Artist Residency. A year later, I was accepted into a residency at Terra Nova National Park so I could witness, study, and be inspired by Iceberg Alley. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend but still dream of visiting Iceberg Alley in Newfoundland, Canada.
Worked again with my FYS students this year in researching endangered plant species in New England, then planned, created, and installed the exhibition UPROOTED to bring awareness to the 6th extinction.

Thank you Husson University and Professor Kathi Smith for the amazing artist visit!
I enjoyed working with your students. Special thanks to the photo student
who photographed my exhibit, beautiful job!
Endangered Species exhibit was a success! My First Year Seminar: Art and the Natural Environment classes installed their endangered species art and info templates in the Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University with the goal of educating the audience on the cause of specific endangered species and what we can do to help. I developed this class to bring together the arts and sciences with a focus on protecting our natural environment.
