Interpretive Sign Projects

Seldovia Sign Project

In 2015, I had the opportunity to work with a team of artists, writers, designers, and carpenters to produce a series of interpretive signs now installed in the town and along the trails of Seldovia, Alaska. Many of the illustrations on this website were drawn specifically for this project. I feel greatly honored to have my work enhanced by the skills of the team and to be represented in the beautiful rural landscape of Seldovia. Disconnected from the main road system, Seldovia is located on the Alaska Marine Highway, and the project was made possible by a grant from the Alaskan Scenic Byways.

To view the signs, and learn more about the project visit www.otterbahn.org (currently under construction), or better yet, pay a visit to this quaint little fishing village and see them in real life!

Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies sign project

CACS is a non-profit organization that fosters connections to wild places and nature exploration. I have had many wonderful opportunities to work with this organization as an environmental educator, and now my artwork is featured on interpretive signs at both the Peterson Bay Field Station and Wynn Nature Center.

Visit CACS when you’re in Homer, and chances are high that you will see many of the species represented in my galleries!
