“Most of my inspiration stems from how landscapes integrate with urban settings. I find great interest in how sturdy man-made structures coexist with organic forms of nature. Alleys, freeway bridges, on-and-off ramps, shabby buildings, construction sites and subjects that don’t get a lot attention are of particular interest to me. Things that evoke a bygone era, things that have a sense of history because it’s been around for a while. I get a good charge out of depicting the nooks and crannies of ignored subjects that don’t get a second look from the public. Through use of color and paint application I hope to convey to the viewer that these places deserve another look. I like to go where concrete, wood, and steel meet nature.”
