  Waiting for Rain, 2024

In the news, icebergs are melting, global temperatures are rising, storms are getting more intense. For me, living on a rural property in Northern California, climate change has become more vivid: the landscape around me is parched for 6 months a year and the threat of wildfires looms closer. I purchase air purifiers and use an app to track the source of smoke plumes on the horizon. Every fall I eagerly await the first rain like a gift, and greet it with a sigh of relief. In my artist book, Waiting for Rain, I bear witness to climate change in all its devastating beauty.
