Artist's Statement
Over the years I have lived in and around many coastal communities and mill towns in New England. I have been drawn to the seacoast and the regional character of its cities and buildings. These neighborhoods are often filled with old homes and buildings that are packed together tightly, creating interesting, crowded arrangements and compositions. The overlapping homes, quirky seacoast neighborhoods, old mill buildings, and urban landscapes have been the subjects of my work as I am drawn to the layers and connections that these buildings and objects create. I work from photographs of actual places from my environment. I then take these buildings and neighborhoods out of their original context and combine them with other images to create new connections among these landscapes. In doing this I create an environment that feels strangely familiar and new at the same time.
