Artist Statement: Rain and Snow
Precipitation in the form of rain and snow spreads water across vast areas of land supporting life. Global warming will change the patterns that were once thought to be stable, and leave many without enough water and others with too much water to survive. It is our responsibility to do whatever we can to prevent or mitigate these effects.
