Art and design has always been my passion. Whether unleashing the creative mind through a sculpture or painting, designing a small detail for a bespoke interior object, or imagining the architectural and interior design of an entire residence; I have been obsessed with creating art, furniture, and interior environments that capture the unique ambiguity of the poetic, romantic, and the minimal. In my opinion, good design is a delicate balance between the reductive, the seductive, the comedic, and the equality between form and function.
Before asserting my direction as an interior architect and designer, I first and foremost am an artist. Studying classical techniques of drawing, photography, painting, and sculpture as well as art and architectural history, I began applying these principles and historic references to architecture and interior design; incorporating art and craft within the disciplines of interior architecture and design.
As a graduate of both Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) where I received a BFA with a focus on interior architecture and architectural history, I began by honing technique and craft in both fine art and architectural design. After graduation and proceeded by a tenure at two high-end residential interior design and architectural firms, I decided to create a design consulting business in conjunction with other designers and architects focusing on a range of services. Some services include support with design detailing, finish selections, furniture, art, and lighting curation to personal creations consisting of two dimensional collage works, metal sculptures from found metal and raw semi-precious stones, and bespoke fabricated furniture.
