In my group of watercolors, the Street Series, I have attempted to blend a sense of relaity with everyday societal issues. My world deals with a gritty textural life. This is an existence filled with dampness, cold, grime, and shadows. I have conured up scenes of homelessness, hopelessness, desperation, violence frustration and isolation. These are the things that I envision woven into the patterns of society. Snippets of human experience being played out somwhere, someplace. Whether it be introspection, query, empathy, or revolution, it is my hope to generate a response.
