Artist Statement
This series of drawings investigate the ambiguity of space. Whether inspired by built form or natural context, my drawings are constructed by an armature of light. Light is engaged in defining space, which also possesses a transmission quality - movement of light in space.  With training and practice in fine art and architecture I render up imagined graphic geometries of the manmade by layering the dimensional space ambiguously. Prismatic and hurried light beckons us to read the work cinematically. Conversely, a haunting almost ghosting sensation pervades other work where one can hear a silence of space.

Artist Bio / CV
My primary training in drawing was with William Flynn at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. After graduating with a degree in Art and Architectural History from Tufts University, I graduated from M.I.T. with a Master's of Architecture degree. At M.I.T., I had further studies in drawing with T. Kelly Wilson.  I practiced architecture in Boston from 1998 through 2004 at Schwartz/Silver Architects. While at Schwartz/Silver, my drawings and renderings were published in Architecture, Contract and Build Boston magazine, as well as in a monograph of Schwartz/Silver published by L'Arcaedizioni.  The jury for the Ken Roberts Architectural Delineation Competition in Dallas selected my drawing as a finalist in 2009 and  the winner in 2008 of the Wiley Prize for Hand Delineation in the professional category.   The international contest is the oldest active architectural drawing competition in the world.

Eight years ago, I returned to live in Western Massachusetts with my family.  In addition to developing my work as an artist, I continue to practice architecture with Juster Pope Frazier in Northampton. Past shows have been featured in American Art Collector magazine and Art Scope magazine, and two of my drawings are now in the permanent collection of the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum and the Smith College Museum of Art.
