For WordWrap: Swimming Upstream I created a series of text/image art prints that reflect on political, social and scientific issues surrounding the cleanup of the Kennebec and other rivers in Maine.

I am inspired by people, past and present, who worked to dramatically improve conditions for the Kennebec and other rivers in Maine and surrounding communities. This digital print series celebrates their stories and sparks discussion of current environmental issues.
