“The Persistence of Nature” is a series of paintings based on scenes found along the sidewalks of Ocean Ave and the surrounding neighborhoods of San Francisco. These familiar landscapes, feature common street plants, typically  considered undesirable, that are set within the grey confines of their concrete environments. They highlight the resiliency required to grow in tough conditions and help us see moments of hope among adversity.
