I paint environments that contain exterior and/or interior shots of buildings and objects. While figures do not often show up in my art, the presence of humans is apparent. The trace of people is seen in the industrial structures I depict and in the evidence of occupation in the compositions. I do this because the space a person inhabits can better show the effects of time passed and the history of actions. I depict the spaces and objects that one could attach sentimental value to, even though they are often made with function prioritized over beauty.
