Artist Statement

Now more than ever, with people in power who do not believe climate change is real, we have to take it upon ourselves to do what we can to protect our environment. Changes are already occurring to New England’s climate, including warmer winters, reduced snowfall, increased rainfall, rising sea level, and more severe weather events that increase the risk of flooding. This show depicts an example of the wonderful Italian culture and lifestyle which is so different for our own. 95% of homes in Italy do not use energy-sapping dryers where 85% of homes in the US do. I am using tree-friendly frames made from sustainable mocha bamboo. They are recyclable and have a Non-Toxic finish. All the elements are bio-degradable and the finish is water-based and free of harsh chemical solvents.
