The approach I take to commission art projects begins with listening and collaborating and results in proposals that are appropriate and distinct from my previous installations. My enthusiasm for problem-solving results in fresh and striking themes that are project specific. Images in my CODAworx portfolio show how this approach has resulted in diverse yet apt solutions. Each of my projects is an example of successfully responding to my client’s objectives with kinetic sculpture that both welcomes and inspires its audience.
I bring business management skills and an extensive design background to each project. Each of my 25+ installations have been delivered on schedule, within budget and have immediately proven appealing to a broad audience. Participating on design teams for over 35 years, I have worked extensively with administrators and planners, architects, interior designers, engineers, contractors and fabricators who say what they like most about our collaborations is my being “superbly professional,” and “a joy to work with,” while contributing a “masterful understanding of architectural space,” and “superb craftsmanship.” The established professional relationships I can call upon insure a successful development-to-

[ 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.
