"I paint what I know. I am interested in what happens in shadows and how the cityscape relates to its sky. As the minutes and hours pass through a day, the character of a space changes. I want to capture the essence of that space as it exists and capture its mood in portrait. The shapes cut by the wires and cast shadows are watch capture my attention and in turn are the principle subjects of my paintings."
