I am a Designer and Builder, or in modern terms, a “maker.”
I have worked professionally designing and creating a wide variety of things -- from houses, stage sets and scenery for Grand Opera to wedding dresses, posters and dance costumes. I’ve used a chain saw to form large sculptures, made furniture, painted literally acres of faux marble, patterned dresses and painted signs.
To me, it is all about color and composition. Whether it’s creating a whole environment or merely a piece of jewelry, what matters is the emotional impact created by the skillful combination of these elements. All is supported by impeccable craftsmanship.
I combine objects in unexpected ways. My extensive experience painting leads to rich and unusual color combinations. Good Design is not enough for me -- I’m satisfied at last when my work leaps out and sings!
