My landscapes typically capture the essence of the urban environment by utilizing the endless tonalities available in printmaking. It is with these rendered impressions that I depict these vignettes through a more refined interpretation of the compositions before me. My use of shadows, texture, and color establish areas of movement and light that create a certain mood, and help the viewer understand my vision of the contemporary landscape.
