Statement, Works on Paper

       Living in San Francisco, I am constantly inspired by the intersection of urban and natural surroundings. In pencil, acrylic, and gauche on paper and wood, I illustrate the conversation, and inherent tensions, between man and nature. My work celebrates the intricacy and delicate beauty of natural forms, while exploring the impact of humanity imposing itself upon our environment, contorting it and shaping it to our will. My drawings form a lens to illuminate and personalize the importance of our current ecological state and the need for stewardship and preservation in our future.
