I feel compelled to capture and share the unique way in which I see and value my environments. Because I?m currently spending most of my time in an urban setting, I’ve been focused on nature in the city?. I love the idea of a city teeming with natural elements, softening the city by adding beauty, fragrance, tranquility, shade, and more.  Visually, I’m attracted to the contrasts and patterns they create: Soft leafy greens against solid geometric forms; living, breathing, growing, and changing textures against static surfaces; organic with manmade, soft with hard, loose with concrete; bright greens against brick reds; the movement of fluttering leaves casting shadows upon flat building facades and sidewalks. I value observing and sketching directly from the life as an integral part of my process.”
