Commissioned to be the design advisor and artist, I have created a few trendy yet soothing art pieces to match the very modern, contemporary, open and calming interiors of a brand new Dental Office (Reveal Dental) in Cedar Park, Texas. The owner, chief Dentist and his wife wanted a 36 x 48 inches canvas art with a wow factor in the reception area and I was able to offer just that and more - brilliance, radiance, serenity and joy.
The goal was to present a cohesive look and incorporate art not as a filler but to add style, sparkle and energy and engage the office staff and patrons. The owners specifically wanted a local artist to take this challenge, demonstrate passion, creativity and dedication and deliver results like it's their own office. The work had to be unique and blend in to the overall theme and flow of the vibrant office appearance and atmosphere.
The experience was inspiring, energizing, exciting, gratifying and simply fun for one and all. While the goals were set, I had the freedom to explore and suggest new ideas and the owners were open, flexible and very supportive. I have asked for and received constant and consistent feedback and the feeling of "team work" made the difference in bringing the best out of me and deliver some of the best work I had ever done in my career.
The work I was able to produce through this project helped accomplish my mission of promoting conversational and inspirational art. My inspiration behind this piece “Emotional Waves” was that “Emotions are very much like waves of energy, some strong, some smooth, some stormy. We can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which ones to play in, which ones to avoid and which ones to surf”.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
