"I am interested in the places where nature returns to our lives: the weeds in a vacant lot, or animals in our dreams. My paintings reflect the puzzling human community of city streets, full of conflict and joy.
My work is often set in places where two worlds meet: rooftops where architecture joins the larger expanse of the clouds, stars, and the world beyond; and the seashore where we can literally walk from dry land into another element, water."
