Artist StatementI'm a hobby artist, with oil on canvas being my primary medium since 2017 (and main content of this show). Most of my figurative and representational work comes from photos I've taken. My abstract work, ever changing, often plays with shapes and relationships of solids and voids along with vibrant colors and without brushes. Prior to oil I painted with acrylics since childhood, as well as sketched, drew, and somewhat more recently, screen printed.
My motivation in making art is just that - to make art. As my body of work grows I have become increasingly interested in sharing it. I'm looking forward to Somerville Open Studios 2018, which will be the first time I'm formally displaying my artwork.
Outside of art I keep busy with my work in the field of urban planning.
