ICE THINS

ICE THINS

2017 Artist statement

As the planet warms from
Fossil fuels use,
Ice in both the Arctic
And the Antarctic
Begins to melt.
In so doing
Walls of beauty
Float on their way
to the ocean.
Ice thins.
Tunnels the height of
The Eiffel Tower
Emerge beneath the ice.
Ice thins.
The Larsen Ice Shelf on
Antarctica widens, it splits
To over 100 miles.
Ice thins.
Warns humans and animals
Of an uncertain future.
The question is,
Will the warning
Be heeded?

I see the world from many different perspectives. My curiosity has taken me to many countries. I enjoy learning about other cultures. I create art with texture, color and form. Most often I make mixed media artwork. I admire the creativiity of others.
