Artist Statement

I have always had an urge to portray the experiences of my life, whether in a mood of contemplation or while moving about in the world. This exhibition represents my interpretation and perceptions I have had while visiting or living in various places while working and touring. I often stop to sketch and photograph what I see and expand it into other art forms when there is time. This artistic record may include drawings, photographs, paintings and prints, which can occur while underway, upon my return, or even years thereafter.

I work in the mediums of Drawing, Painting, Photography and Printmaking, and have produced a consistent body of work through time. My art explores the connection between the built and the natural world, expressing my interest in the Surreal and the Ironic. I often use strong forms and symbols such as bridges and stairs to make reference to larger truths.


A Look at my Past

As an Architect I have had a life-long involvement in drawing, painting, photography, and printmaking. Parallel to my career in Architecture, I have also been active as a teacher of Design, Drawing, Printmaking and Photography at the following institutions:

Columbus College of Art & Design

Columbus State Community College

Graduate School of Design, North Carolina State University

Technische Universitåt, Vienna, Austria

Salzburg College, Salzburg, Austria
