My work is often a documentation of my physical surroundings, both built and natural forms. Having lived and worked in Portland, OR for nearly twenty years, my work is almost exclusively about the buildings, bridges, roadways, rivers, mountains and forests of this area. Through these pursuits and over time, I have observed how the landscape has transformed, and how my work no longer represented actual places and instead became about the history of that place. Now, I cannot help but consider the impermanent nature of the landscapes I paint and am further compelled me to seek out places in active transformation. Some works are straightforward representations that depict a literal moment during this process and others become surreal impressions, guided more by the feeling of disorientation caused by a world in flux.
