The longer I delve into my family history, the more I realize that the history of the place that I grew up in the north is similar to what my ancestors experienced...the rustic lodgings of the trappers, the fight for survival in a difficult situation. And it's interesting how I have always been drawn to a simpler lifestyle, dreaming of a life in a log cabin surrounded by nature. With these pieces I wanted to continue to explore the use of a graffiti-style application of paint in many layers, to add texture in the skies, and to keep the drawings of the cabins minimal, like blueprints or architectural drawings...lighter, almost like a memory of the past.
