Artist Statement As a nod to my previous career in architecture, structural themes often arise in my work. I have always loved the details of design: rhythms and complex beauty in the lines and curves of our manmade world. I’m captivated by an alleyway, for instance... piles & stacks, shafts of light that pass through and over old buildings, metal fire escapes. My work is composed of rural and urban landscapes as well as particular objects that capture my love of sculpted form. My inner geek engages in design dialogue, my quiet side senses a good story. I enjoy the adventure of carving out these ideas on canvas; each brush stroke taking on a form of its own, overall a texture that explores and expresses the object.
