My recent work is the expression of how nature responds to the man-made structures in our urban surroundings. I observe as nature crawls its way to the surface of the sidewalks, train tracks, and brick walls that comprise New York City. Inspired by the imagery of my daily life, I create deserted landscapes which are produced primarily with pen, ink, and washes of paint. These spaces serve as a witness to abandoned human activity. I intend to record the moment when decay begins, or when something new, something different is to be born.
