Artist Statement

My paintings reflect my interest the built environment, and the interplay between city life, nature and infrastructure. My work is greatly influenced by my career as a landscape architect, where I learned to appreciate the overlap of history, topography, cultures, and industry that occurs in an urban environment. Responding to certain sites that might otherwise be overlooked, whether industrial areas, old streetcars, or the urban street, I want to capture the appeal and life of these settings with the vibrancy of colors that is my foundation. My paintings are a reflection on the underlying beauty of the places we see, and often don’t see, in our world.
