With my background in architecture, I strive to convey the spirit of architecture, cities, and places through light. Light reveals space, form, texture, material and time. By studying these subjects at different times of the day and seasons, I try to capture this intersection between them. I am interested in the emotional and provocative reactions to space, place and moment. Finally, seeking to know light and simplicity is what I’m working on. I use sketching and painting as a travelogue and believe that each place contains its own story to share.
