I paint urban landscapes to document stages in an ever-changing tapestry. My favorite subject, San Francisco, is a romantic metropolis- a dense concentration of diverse individual experiences occurring simultaneously in a public space. I‚Äôm fascinated by the city‚Äôs harmony of contradictions- how it can be both personal yet impersonal, welcoming yet frightening, dirty yet vibrant. I explore these connections in colorful nightscapes.
Night scenes encourage us to look at our surroundings and their inhabitants- ourselves and our neighbors- more closely, and in a new light. By creating scenes that hint at movement, I am illustrating the city itself as a temporal canvas- not just the space in which this moment happened, but as the space in which innumerable moments have happened and will happen in the future.
