    Artist Statement

    "A Death in the Desert is my visual poem dedicated to the subtle and austere beauty of the high desert. But something is amiss, as this is an environment losing the battle to climate change and urban sprawl. Although this year has brought abundant rainfall, the years of drought have taken their toll and what was once tough and rugged has now become fragile, a fact that haunts my consciousness.
