    'When I began working for an architect in 2007, I developed an inclination towards a specific type of canary tracing paper architects typically use for sketching. I In order to examine my external environment, I have borrowed from architecture not only its characteristic paper but also its visual language. My creative process begins with a physical survey of a given building: I will take detailed measurements, photographs, and/or gather historic documentation. Using ink on paper, I will recreate the building, void of unnecessary information such as tress, vehicles or people. Finally, I use varnish to mount the paper onto canvas. The result is a highly detailed drawing disguised as a painting. Typically, people associate architectural drawings with the documentation of truth and precise representation. My work challenges this association by using the vernacular of architectural drawings to create "lies" about buildings. I will slightly misrepresent buildings by either idealizing them and/or intentionally distorting them. I aim to provoke the audience to question not only the validity of what they are seeing, but also their own perspectives towards their external environment.'
