Every day I take the @eastriverferry to and from work in lower Manhattan. I love my commute, being on the water, and seeing the skyline of the city. It looks different every day, every month, every season. This series uses found materials collected in the city. The textures and colors are inspired by what I see on my commute - layers of different materials, cracked concrete, brick, peeling paint, murals, graffiti, wood, glass, steel, rust, water, ice. There’s so much to see. //
