Artist Statement: My artistic process involves immersion in the urban landscape. I wander through streets, capturing photographs, sketching on location, and absorbing the sights, sounds, and textures of the city. These observations serve as a foundation for my prints, as I distill the essence of these experiences into compositions that reflect the vibrant spirit and unique character of each place
