My piece incorporates a background of landscape alluding to our regional wildfires and global climate change. I included our iconic Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom and equality. In my collage, Liberty is weeping as she considers the dire urgency of our climate crisis.

I am an artist working in oil on canvas, watercolor, graphite, and relief printing. My work is about the delicate interconnection of living things with the environment. In my landscapes, I draw on themes of volatility, shifting earth, and the current state of flux in our world.

Biden’s Plan

The current COVID-19 pandemic reminds us how profoundly the energy and environmental policy decisions of the past have failed communities of color – allowing systemic shocks, persistent stressors, and pandemics to disproportionately impact communities of color and low-income communities.
Joe Biden is running for President to ensure that all Americans have a fair shot at getting ahead. That means rooting out the systemic racism in our laws, policies, institutions, and hearts. Any sound energy and environmental policy must advance public health and economic opportunity for all Americans, in rural, urban, and suburban communities, and recognize that communities of color and low-income communities have faced disproportionate harm from climate change and environmental contaminants for decades. It must also hold corporate polluters responsible for rampant pollution that creates the types of underlying conditions that are contributing to the disproportionate rates of illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 among Black, Latino, and Native Americans. That means officials setting policy must be accountable to the people and communities they serve, not to polluters and corporations.Addressing environmental and climate justice is a core tenet of Biden’s climate plan.
