I create shaped abstract paintings that function as fragments and are often exhibited as installations where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.  
My current work investigates relations between man-made architectural structure and the natural landscape; questions arise at how these two forces coexist in an urban environment.  While both phenomena occur in all environments, I am most interested in the dynamic in a high contrast urban context. The correlation between urban decay and natural beauty (both at the micro and macro level) influence the work.  How we interpret beauty and questions about values are addressed.
