Artist’s Statement

“I studied landscape architecture before focusing on art. My recent collages stem from this experience. Curiosities around landscape urbanism & environmental justice inform my practice. I take photographs incessantly, mostly documenting various landscapes from the rustbelt where I grew up, to tropical south Florida where I now live. The work references both landscape imagery and photo-documentation of my own painting practice. The result is a series of hand-cut digital collages on un-stretched canvas that appear as painterly and sculptural as they do photographic, much like the landscapes that inspire them.”
