NYC The Big Picture

Tartans tell the story of people and places through their distinct colors and patterns. In the official New York City Tartan, for example, green represents Central Park, blue for the rivers, and black for the fallen twin towers.  I have integrated fragmented traditional Scottish clan tartans into watercolor paintings of their depopulating ancestral lands.
