I am a part-time professor at the University of Idaho (department of Fish and Wildlife), and a artist working at the interface of visual art and Conservation Biology. My art practice encompasses mixed media and printmaking, with a strong grounding in ceramics. All of my work explores the troubled interface between humans and the global biosphere (particularly coastal and marine ecosystems). Specific areas of conceptual focus include alterity, otherness, and hierarchy in depictions of non-human entities, the use of mythological imagery to explore contemporary ecological threat, and absurdity and tragicomedy in the interface between human and non-human evolution. I also create Reconciliation Art- in-situ installations that serve an ecological function (restoring ecological function, enhancing habitat, etc.).
