Bay Invaders
de Young Museum, San Francisco, CA

Non-native species are introduced to the San Francisco bay by aquatic vessels every day. ​With the absence of natural competitors or predators, these invaders reproduce rapidly and impact the local ecological balance as they disrupt the entire bay ecosystem.

During my five week residency at the de Young Museum of Art I worked on a new painting series of the changing bay ecosystem. Visitors to the Museum were invited to engage and experience firsthand the creative artistic process, 

including preparation, creation and presentation of their artwork.

I am thankful to Dr. Andrew Cohen, Director of the Center for Research on Aquatic Bioinvasions, for taking me on a bay excursion field trip, and showing me the many exotic species that are now here to stay.
