I once lived in South Florida, where I shared my suburban home with reptiles, tropical birds, and amphibians. The coral beneath my feet once was a slow-moving river. It is now drained to accommodate lawns, streets, and parks.

The Vestige series compares images with similar shapes and differing meanings. Each composition compares a human element with a natural element. The spine is the human center of mobility and function. The Everglades were once a spine of percolating coral and limestone until destroyed by development. These drawings are an homage to the Everglades.

art urges voyages,

and it is easier to stay home."
