Artist Statement

Like a lot of people, I watch the jumbled progress of the world with the usual mix of wonder and anxiety. Like possibly a few less people, I use that wonder and anxiety in an approach towards painting landscapes. Using elements of the places I spend time in as sort of building blocks, I've been building and rebuilding my own cityscapes. Some driving forces of these paintings include ideas of adaptation, growth, balance and the slow accumulation of parts to create a greater whole. While working, my thoughts often touch on communities and constructed environments: the mix of nature and artifice; how we as a community are held together or fall apart, and all of our vulnerabilities.  I am curious about the resilience of life and our ability to keep going in the face of ever shifting circumstances.
