These urbanscapes intertwine geometric and abstract patterns into the dense neighborhoods and cityscapes of Los Angeles. Inspiration for these patterns is found from many sources. Art Deco patterns found on and in the buildings in downtown Los Angeles, op-art patterns, as well as seismic and zoning maps. These designs warp, stretch, squeeze and surround streets and buildings.

These drawings are meticulously made through a meditative process using hundreds of colored pencils. This methodical approach mirrors how our built spaces are crafted, by hand, over a long period of time and carefully planned while also allowing for the unpredictable. These drawings and their quilt like aesthetic depict the humanity of our communities and our connections to each other, seen and unseen.
