DM is a Maine visual artist working with photographic media. She was educated in the environmental sciences which led to her working as a field biologist for more than a decade. During this same period of time, she merged her scientific practice of inquiry and discovery with that of expression and making in her creative practice. Her work questions our relationship to the natural world, our place in the universe, and our responsibly to this earth and those who inhabit it.
Living along the banks of the St. George River in Maine with her her husband is where the verdant greens and the shifting tides inspire her.
She is an Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities at Unity College and the Managing Editor of Hawk & Handsaw - The Journal of Creative Sustainability, the college’s literary and visual arts journal.
