"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.

"Falling Sky" In creating this "Tradigital* art, I did not start with a clear intention; conversely, the intent or meaning was revealed to me in the process. "Falling Sky" is one in which the purpose or intention of creating it was revealed to me as in my dream, which I completely forgot. It comes from a deep sense of loss in these simple, powerful images and their composition. For those who know me, its communication is clear. I hope that others engage the work as a mystery allowing them to bring their emotions to the experience.
