Artist's Statement
As a Petaluma resident, I was deeply moved by the devastating loss of life, homes, barns, and vineyards that engulfed Sonoma county during the North Bay Fires of 2017. I never dreamed this kind of destruction was even possible and I soon realized climate change was the new reality, no longer a theoretical forecast. As soon as it was possible, I began to photograph the burnt-out remnants of neighborhood backyards: metal dining tables, lawn chairs, a child’s playhouse, and I realized I was documenting artifacts and structural reminders of lives that had been changed forever.

The Stornetta Dairy and Creamery was the local headquarters for the company and the 100-year-old grey-white building was an historic landmark in the county. This building and all the accompanying structures on both sides of Route 12 in Sonoma were destroyed by the fires.
