Fine Art- Urban Cityscapes of Evanston & Chicago (Museum Prints & Consignment available)

"These images serve as a historical account of the contemporary urban landscape. In all my work I challenge myself to  capture a unique portrait of everyday life while forcing an aggressive 2-point perspective, choosing a “retro” inspired palette to block in the shapes and employing turn-of the century glazing techniques to draw out the sense of depth, atmosphere, warmth, and shadow.
