Artist Statement

I find inspiration in the ever-changing dynamics of city life, particularly in the urban subject matter that surrounds me. I connect deeply with the spaces I live in by not only exploring the visual aspects but also by researching the history and the stories that unfold within the buildings and structures that populate the cityscape. I am endlessly fascinated by the little stories and changes that make up the tapestry of urban life. This creative journey has always been my way of falling in love with my home cities, and my hope is that it will spark a similar affection in the viewer. Perhaps it will encourage others to find beauty in sometimes unassuming buildings or appreciate the grittiness of a city, as I do, through the lens of art.
