  • Artist Statement

    "I have always had an affinity for architecture that is industrial in nature. The Duwamish River is the lower 12 miles of Washington state's Green River and an industrialized estuary is known as the Duwamish Waterway. It's final destination is Elliott Bay in Seattle where I live. With industry comes contamination and as such it was declared a Superfund site by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. However, it offers many opportunities to explore and photograph. When the light is just right and the composition comes together a place that others see as just another industrial diversion on the way to work turns into ART. I never tire of it."
