My urbanscapes celebrate the poetry of the ordinary in the city environment. Seeking to connect the viewer with what is often overlooked, the paintings also hold meanings that transcend their immediate subject. The underlying context, informed by Asian principles of feng shui, attempts to address deeper truths about the human experience.
Other paintings on this site include landscapes inspired by travels in Ireland and France.
I recently added a page of earlier collages. These works began as an attempt to explore spatial and atmosheric effects, which led to more ideas related to landscape. Many contain my etchings re-worked.
