I employ the power of story to make meaningful visual experiences. Many artworks are inspired by community stories or the journey of a single person but the inspiration is often muffled or forgotten. I build both the artwork and the story to create a lasting potent experience.
In my process, the artwork is often born from the story. But sometimes, it’s the opposite. The artwork comes first then I craft the story. So, know that some of the stories associated with my artwork are of my own creation.
I have worked with Peter on two separate projects this year. He is a delightful, professional artist who delivered magnificent artwork on time and in budget. From the beginning of each project to the end, Peter paid great attention to every detail. His input and creativity with the design process helped us with the initial presentations to our clients. It was a pleasure working together and I look forward to many more collaborations.

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.
