This installation combined purchased or “found” pieces, discarded or donated by others & altered by me. My theme is human impact on our natural world – specifically, disappearing & compromised habitats; lost or endangered animal life; contaminated waterways; & climate change.

Please also see the Artomatic 2017 page of this website, where these themes are revisited and expanded upon ...
