Roger Peet

Roger Peet is an artist and printmaker in Portland, Oregon. He spends a lot of his time thinking about the tidal wave of extinction currently engulfing the earth, and what can and can't be done about it. He unsuccessfully strives to balance the depressing truth of the homogocene with some sort of rage against the proverbial dying of the light.
