Our City Our Neighborhood

My current series of work is called “OUR CITY, OUR NEIGHBORHOOD”. This series is comprised of simple urban scenes that enhance some aspect of reality through a very graphic manipulation of light, color and texture.

My intent is to capture an emotional point in time within each scene whether it be nostalgic reflection, simple observation, or a happy glance into a moment’s fleeting possibilities.

Screenprinting allows me to reduce the idea to its simplest form or to be as detailed and complex as I want. The repetitive nature of printmaking gives me a chance to experiment, adjust, and sometimes encounter those happy accidents that are all part of making art.
