Artist statement:

I turned my fascination with buildings and how they are constructed into a 10-year career in architecture, working my way up in the biz. The only problem was that the love of the craft started to escape me. It makes sense, then, that I would start mucking around in Photoshop with delightful old pieces of cartography and images of iconic buildings. I ended up creating my own art form by taking pieces of the past and marrying them with modern architectural marvels. A street scene with the unmistakable Flatiron building looks right at home on top of an old map of the gridded streets of Lower Manhattan, turns out. Passion: renewed.
