In 2016, during a four­ week art residency aboard the National Geographic Explorer, I had the opportunity to experience something few people ever do: the ethereal majesty of Antarctica. Although I have traveled over the planet ­­from Greenland’s ice sheet to the Sahara Desert­­, Antarctica was unlike anything I had ever seen. The towering ice radiated a sapphire blue that took my breath away.

Many of us are intellectually aware that climate change is our greatest global challenge, and yet the problem may feel abstract, the imperiled landscapes remote. I hope my drawings make Antarctica’s fragility visceral to the viewer, emulating the overpowering experience of being beside a glacier.
