Design Philosophy



My design work fits within a time and place for it to exist; rarely are designs repeated. I strive to evoke relaxed and surreal emotions, Wet Art, when entering a space - mood changing experience achieved by much more than merely acquiring and placing objects.

I find the quality of the surroundings can lift the quality of our lives. On every design project a holistic environmental approach of creatively merging existing elements with the new assists in achieving this positive life impact.
