Artist's Statement:

My work explores space; the emptiness, the fullness, the expansive, the crowded, the quiet, the noisy, the structured, the chaotic, that make up our world. The subjects are often based on and rendered abstractly from photographs I have taken while hiking in wilderness, or walking city streets. These subjects are first rendered in small, delicate, pen marks on canvas, constructing landscapes of mountains, forests, buildings and whole cities. Structured acrylic blocks and washes break the space into abstracted fields of color.
