Continuing the story of polar melt, a significant contributing factor to rising seas, I followed the meltwater from the Arctic to the Equator. I spent September 2013 in the Maldives, the lowest and flattest country in the world, collecting images and inspiration to create a body of work celebrating and representing a nation that could be entirely underwater within this century. Two award-winning artists who participated in the Greenland expedition Chasing The Light, joined me in this venture: painter Lisa Lebofsky, and director, filmmaker, and actress Drew Denny.


During our month on the islands, we shared the concept of our project with children on the islands, inviting them to document their homeland as it transforms throughout their lives. The children can use their creativity to continue spreading awareness while inwardly processing the ecological transformations surrounding them.


I hope my drawings will raise awareness and invite viewers to share the urgency of the Maldivians’ predicament in a productive and hopeful way.  I believe art can facilitate a deeper understanding of crises, helping us find meaning and optimism amidst shifting landscapes.
