Artist Statement

Mostly Vermont, some Upstate NY, New Hampshire, and Wester MA. My personal connection starts as a kid but gains importance during Hurricane Irene in August 2011. The torrential downpour wiped out many of the bridges which were beloved by their respective communities. For the remainder of 2011 and part of 2012, it was difficult to get around parts of VT, as entire regions of the state were severed from the highway. At the time, I was dating a woman in VT and spent more time there than in MA.

I enjoy drawing these because they're most often small structures surrounded by natural growth. The composition tends to be more about the placement of the bridge within it's surroundings, a luxury I rarely get to enjoy when drawing thickly settled areas.
