Bayous & Barriers, Canals & Katrina
In 2016, after a long career as a medical and scientific illustrator, I returned to my first love, painting and drawing, looking to capture the effects of the rising global temperature on the landscape and ecology of these places. It led me to investigate the science behind these changes and the resulting book is a mixture of art and science that I hope will provide insights into the most concerning global topic of the 21st century – climate change.
‘Bayous & Barriers, Canals & Katrina…An Artist’s Journey Into The Science Of Global Climate Change’ is my second book and focuses on the social, economic and environmental history of Coastal Louisiana and the effects of the climate crisis on this vulnerable coastline. The book also links the three places close to my heart: London, England; Jasper, Alberta; and Mandeville, Louisiana. Using these examples of ‘My Places’, the book explains the science of climate change through the eyes of an artist and illustrates what is happening to our endangered environment.
