Lost Effect Cause Found explores the role of manmade environments in a world with rapidly changing weather and landscapes. The work is driven by questions such as, Do manmade landscapes and the conservation of natural environments work against each other as solutions to changing climates?  and What options are available for maintaining beautiful landscapes and growing enough food as we race against the clock? The complexity of our relationship to the natural world, and the unknowable effects of our actions, inspired this work. The intent of the artwork is to evoke a sense of awe and exploration similarly to manmade parks and farms, but also to inspire inquiry and reflection. The paintings are meant to feel familiar, but they do not reflect specific places in our world; rather, they explore ideologies and emotions evoked by certain kinds of places.
