Last Dance of the Honeybee’, 30x40”, mixed media on wood panel.
Mixed media artist Karen Haub and I collaborated on this 3D mixed media found object assemblage. This piece developed as @studio_karen_h and I discussed the plight of the honeybees as they suffer from impaired function, hive collapse, and death due constant exposure to pesticides. The names of some of the pesticides responsible for the near extinction of the bees are collaged into the piece.

‘Tears of the Sea’ 25.5” x 37.5” framed, mixed media assemblage.
This artwork was created by mixed media artist Karen Haub and I. The Channel Islands marine debris volunteers are stewards of the ocean who collect and remove plastics and trash that endanger and kill marine and island life native to Santa Cruz Island, this is some of the debris removed from Santa Cruz Island, which acts as a trash barrier to the Santa Barbara and Ventura coastal areas. Due to its position in the current flow of the Pacific Garbage Patch, a lot of plastic debris littering the ocean washes up on the south facing side of Santa Cruz Island endangering and killing native birds, sea birds, marine life, and island foxes.
