PORTFOLIO: THE ERA OF EXTINCTION

A portfolio of my environmental projects that reflect upon and respond to current environmental issues of the 21st century.

This collection of oil paintings gives identity and individuality to amazing coral species that I have encountered. Colour, form, texture, name.

My final univeristy project  continues to explore coral bleaching through

Exploring coral bleaching through the loss and disappearance of the art. Clay and water are predominant mediums explored. 

#100CORALS

Based on the recent study that showed out of 100 coral reefs investigated, only 6 had not been affected by coral bleaching and climate change. 

CORAL STUDIES

2019

A project studying corals  before and after the bleaching process through drawing with pencil, ink, and bleach. 

DARKROOM PLASTIC

Photograms of plastic bottles, exploring the permanence but fragility of the material that pollutes our oceans.

GONE SERIES

Exploring coral bleaching through photography and loss. 

ENDANGERED

2018

Acrylic paintings of animals on the IUCN list of endangered species. 

SOLID PLASTIC

If plastic bottles were looked at as a solid, indestructible material, would we look at them the same way? Would we be so willing to throw them away?
