My artwork is focused on the study of nature in urban settings.


Particularly, I am interested in better understanding how perceiving changing natural processes in an urban park setting can affect human psychology. ┬áPainting for long hours in park “urban wilderness” settings in cities around the world provides the means to stay onsite for longer periods of time for analysis and observation beyond a brief site walk. Painting provides a complimentary data-collection counterpart to digital mappings of landscapes and is a tactic for recording temporal change which is traditionally considered difficult to depict in plan. And, painting outdoors without an image or photograph is a welcome face-to-face interaction amidst my habits of texting and other digital interfaces.


All work is painted life-size and drawn and painted as seen from a sitting position in the landscape– whether a small flower or large branches.

I have a Masters degree in Landscape Architecture and a BA in Fine Arts.
