My CALIFORNIA NATURAL DISASTER painting collection was conceived and executed after the largest landslide in California history.
In May 2017, the Mud Creek Landslide fell within several hundred feet of my home in Big Sur, California. This body of work reflects how this natural disaster directly impacted my life. My home was located in such close proximity to this landslide I was forced to evacuate and relocate my life permanently.
This body of oil paintings contemplates the idea of home, stability and the fragility of manmade infrastructures amidst changing landscapes. Most importantly, this experience has brought my attention to the thousands of people worldwide who have lost their lives or homes due to the impacts of natural disasters. My desire is for my abstract landscape paintings to serve as reminders for all of humanity to help innovate solutions for climate change and demonstrate compassion towards natural disaster victims. I am donating 15% of the proceeds of each oil painting I sell towards international disaster relief.
