"All along the Alaskan beaches for hundreds of miles from the Bering to the Chukchi Seas, the beaches are devastated by erosion. Call it 'Global Warming,' or other, but where there were once beaches that I recognized in some regions are altered and gone. Ancient prehistoric and historic village sites along with historic hunting and fishing encampments are now underwater and in the sea. I am not positioning myself to collect, save for photos that I can use in the future to replicate motif that is considered extinct. My studio is the only one from the Arctic that offers such designs from lost Arctic cultural horizons"
