This work, titled Lost at Sea, was created with single-use plastic bags. It is meant to be a commentary about rising sea levels as a consequence of global warming, and about the 269,000 tons of plastic debris currently floating on the surface of the ocean.

Jelly Nation, 2017
This installation, Jelly Nation, was created entirely with a human-made source of ocean pollution – single-use plastic bags. In designing this work, my goal was to raise awareness of the current health of marine life on our planet. About one trillion single-use plastic bags are used annually across the globe. That’s nearly 2 million every minute. They end up floating in oceans where turtles, albatross and other sea creatures mistake them for jellyfish. Also, since jellyfish thrive in environments where overfishing, rising water temperatures and ocean acidification are prevalent, the future of our ocean’s biodiversity is further at risk.
Plastic Coral Reef
Trashy Coral Reef, 2018
This work, Trashy Coral Reef, was created entirely with a human-made source of ocean pollution - single-use plastic bags. Coral reefs are the most diverse of all marine ecosystems, housing tens of thousands of marine species. Yet living reefs everywhere are under stress because of rising water temperatures and ocean acidification linked to rising carbon dioxide levels.
Plastic Planet I: Scorched, 2018
This wall sculpture is a visual commentary on the environmental impact of global warming and climate change. As global temperatures rise, planet earth is undergoing a significant process of change. These modifications to earth, including warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, rising sea levels and retreating glaciers, have significance to humans as we adapt to our changing earth over the next century. The plastic bags, altered from their usual functional form, are an important symbolic element of the work, representing our current problems with pollution and carbon emissions.
