The Artist Says:

Although I still work as an illustrator, the self exploration and freedom involved in painting without a client in mind has become extremely precious to me. The allowance that a mistake is not a problem, but more often an opportunity to move myself in a different direction lets me explore my work in a fresh way." I suppose that's a nice way of saying I make a lot of mistakes.

Artist’s Statement
I am trained as an architect and, as such, approach painting design with a very similar sensibility. I feel that I need to communicate the vernacular of place in a way that is deeply personal to me. I embrace a dialogue between the real and imagined- seeking a way to allow myself to express my personal feeling of being in a certain setting rather than being confined by the reality of it. That ebb and flow, the back and forth, are what I find important and are my motivation for all of my work.
