Artist Statement:

My work ranges from various subjects, such as the abstract, music, and local places. My most recent works have been primarily focused on Bethlehem Steel. I tend to focus on different views of the structure to create an intriguing composition. Another aspect I try to focus on is the geometric shapes created by the structure or by use of shadows. I also focus on the Steel as a way to show history and time, through the rust and decay of the structure.
