This illuminated artwork was created to sparkle the VIP Lounge along with a 40' dramatic drop of chandeliers at the escalator entrance of the Vancouver Convention Centre.


Asked to be the Feature Artist of the IDS (Interior Design Show) Vancouver was an honor. I installed this Galaxia Chandelier for the VIP lounge where the design world's top designers such as Jonathan Adler and Corey Klassen were guest speakers of the exhibition. International exposure of my work and the honor of being featured at IDS became a integrated public relations platform and collaborative display of design.
