I am a huge believer in interdisciplinary climate work that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of academia, arts, cultural knowledge and experience. Having spent my life as an artist and my education studying ecology and environmental science, I think that it is crucial to communicate about the environment is as many different ways as possible. Below are some examples of collaborations that I have done with science and research organizations to create  artistic pieces and educational materials to communicate and engage people with their work.
