Image Statement: The focus of my work is the complex, often fraught, interaction of humans with their environment. Birds of Prophecy references that relationship by focusing on twenty-three endangered birds, each threatened by loss of habitat, changing temperatures, and other human activities. Without intervention, many of them may be lost to future generations.
