Biome Artist Statement

Wikipedia describes a biome as a formation of plants and animals that have common characteristics due to similar climates. Examples of biome environments may be forests, deserts or oceans.

My Biome is a dialogue influenced by our rapidly vanishing coral reef system. It is a testimony to the amazing variety of organisms that live on this planet that is now at risk due to global warming. The Great Barrier Reef in 2016 lost almost a quarter of its corals followed by another loss in 2017 of two-thirds. I hope to bring attention to the danger to we are facing with the loss of these treasures.

My Biomes are created from an assortment of materials: dried plants, seeds, pods, fiber, yarn, felt, fabric, paper, and lace overlaid with encaustic, oils, and pastels.
