Artist Statement

I work with traditional media to focus on contemporary issues like the effect that urban development can have on our landscape and how the ordinary prevails. My style is formalized & post-cubist. I work in series like Tarps & Washing Lines which I began after graduation from the RCA. In Dungeness Kent, I painted the beautiful wild blue delphiniums growing along the edge of the nuclear power plant & the washing that floats in the breeze across the peninsular illustrating the presence of the breath of nature. Recent subjects are the Coastal Edge of Florida & the Puddles of Time on the Eastern Shore.
