My work is dynamic visual abstraction about urban movement...transient visual moments captured at high speed, snippets and fragments framed and defined by the cityscape, quickly forgotten, yet leaving a residual imprint that is and unconscious distillation of our collective experience. Collage, painting, sculpture, video, and photography are the mediums I use to make my work.
