Art with a sense of adventure. Lover of color, modern design and all things rusted and abandoned. Oh, and bikes, I really dig life on two wheels.
Alive with activity and visually rich, the urban scene is so exhilarating. I’ve always been drawn to the gritty side of town and I feel a rush at the thought of exploring an abandoned building or discovering the rusted out remains of a former factory. Stripped of their facades these places are real – grimy, with a hint of danger, often boldly colorful – and loaded with layers of character. To harness that character I embrace flaws, even emphasize them, with techniques that make sporadic imperfections an integral part of the final piece. it all works best when I create intuitively, so the process of layering materials like acrylic paint and paper emulates things that reveal character – strong color, peeling paint, and decay – adding details that help tell our unique stories.
