Our planet's oceans are essential to all of our lives, whether we live near them or not. I've just spent the summer meeting with ocean researchers and advocates to learn more about current issues. There are so many ways that the seaweed communities provide critical habitat, nutrition, and environmental solutions!
I believe contemporary art inspired by science offers a way to come into environmental questions through the doorway of inspiration and engagement! When I share my art and with people, new understandings and connections develop that lead to awareness and advocacy.
Watch for a major exhibition early next Spring with my ocean and seaweed related art! Fun and engaging programming and events will accompany the exhibition!
