Fertile Exchange

As a relatively recent transplant to the Bay Area, I am constantly struck by the beauty and complexity of the region.  From buildings stacked for miles in a vertical march to roads that snake circuitously around hills, I am fascinated by agricultural, industrial and urban forms and their relationship with the land that supports them. In the meeting of the built environment with the landscape, I find not only fertile ground for painterly expression but also hope that balance can somehow be achieved.
