I was commissioned by Tiffany's & Co. to create an original piece of art for their private client viewing room.
Working with in the limitation of Tiffany's & Co. branding, I had to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to work to complete this project. They sent me a color swatches and design concepts for the remodel.
This project was a bit of a challenge. Working with one designer out of New York, they selected art from my website for the type of composition (a closed composition) they liked. However, when I went to Tiffany's and Co. in Portland, a different designer showed me a different composition (an open composition). Not wanting to disappoint the client, I ended up making five different pieces of art work for Tiffany's and Co. and they got to have their choice.
When working with a client, I make at least two pieces depending on the size sometimes more. I do not want the client to feel stuck with a piece they do not like.

[ 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.
