Last week I was back in New York and although the visit was strictly a family affair, I managed to make time to do what I love: walk through the streets, absorb the sights and sounds, immerse myself in the unique energy of this magical city, while capturing with my camera everything I knew I had to record...
Upon my return home, I was struck by the sight of my most recent works spread around the studio; all of a sudden the connection to what I am surrounded while in New York became so evident! And so back again at my studio I am listening to the "voice" of New York in chorus with so many other voices of places I've lived, of relationships I formed, of ups and downs I've survived; their whispers are vividly dictating the narrative of my works and I am truly grateful for their guidance!
