Statement

I am a London based artist currently working in my studio downtown Cambridge Maryland. I work with traditional media to focus on contemporary issues like the effect that urban development can have on our landscape. My style is formalized & FIGURATIVE in a POST-CUBIST landscape so it includes elements of POP, SURREALISM & even some American REALISM.
