ARTIST STATEMENT
"In my artistic exploration of the urban environment, my works delve into the intricacies of the daily commute, capturing silhouettes and waypoints that form the fabric of our routine journeys. These visual markers gleaned from the everyday hustle, collectively compose an environmental portrait, revealing the distinctive identity of place. Through this street level observation, I unveil the nuances of urban life, transforming mundane moments into a visual collage that reflects the essence of our day-to-day. By documenting this transient beauty within the ordinary, my artworks invite viewers to reconsider the overlooked and find profound narratives within their familiar landscapes of their daily existence."
