I am a painter highly influenced by the New York city-based photorealist movement that came out of the 1970s and particularly admire paintings of Tom Blackwell and Richard Estes. In contrast to their strict, factual and non-editorializing brand of photorealism, however, I am more painterly and aspire to imbue my cityscapes with the deep psychological breadth of Edward Hopper and suspenseful thrill of Alfred Hitchcock.
