"Dead Bee," Tradigital NFT Artwork, speaks to Colony Collapse Disorder and the dying off of the bee population worldwide. These creations and other traditional art and exhibits stem from my investigation of how rising CO2 levels contribute to the die-off of bees. Researchers found that rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere from manufacturing have caused a dramatic reduction of protein in pollen. The lack of protein in this vital food source for honey bees has reduced their reproduction ability significantly. This reduction in bees will considerably impact food resources; bees help provide approximately 60% of man's agricultural foods.

This simple drawing depicts our daily problem of adding to the planet's destruction by using plastics. Unfortunately, contributing to the problem is virtually impossible to avoid as most products are wrapped, encased, divided, or manufactured with plastics.
The drawing "Out of The Nest" was created from direct observation. Amazingly outside my studio, I found a bird's nest with, ironically, a pull tab from a drink carton. It summarized so much of the context of my work I had to draw it on the spot.
