It is difficult to acquire an "Architectural Digest" picture in most homes as we "live" in them.

Images of my design work from projects that are either working or completed and some before and afters. Also, images of items that were inspirational in achieving the  designs.

Often I am asked "What is your design style?" The best description of my style is  blending simplicity with luxury, extravagances with essentials, and applying it to the structure, its location and the people who will live there, every detail is site specific.

Inside Secret ....As often as possible, I prefer a departure from the norm using ecological principles and organics with a mix of luxurious, original and contemporary elements forming a striking composition.

I study design and art from the world every day. Travels to Europe, Mexico, Alaska and throughout the Southwest have given me exposure to colors, shapes, textures and cultures which gives me great resource for what I do as a designer.

It is always most important for me to provide a  finished structure with an environment made for its location, the structure and most importantly the residents.
