Artist Statement:


    My drawings do not contain photographs nor scanned material. They are drawn freehand directly on a computer and printed on a
    high-end inkjet printer. My practice is an inherently hybrid process, mixing the languages of drawing and computer imaging to bring
    together some familiar opposites such as handmade and technological, organic and mechanical, physical and virtual. The subjects of my work may be interpreted as models for planned communities as much as aerial views of fictional suburbs. The images reference the computer as a tool for urban planning as well as image capture. They raise questions about the relationship between design and actual lived experience, subverting the implied rationality of urban design to expose conflicts that lie beneath the surface. These drawn digital works are a comment on the fears as well as the dreams expressed in suburban culture.
