Philosophy and design are tightly intertwined in all I create. It is just as important to speak to and ruminate on what I do, as it is the actuality of doing. The elements of design are the legs upon which meaning and purpose sit. This is my wholistic approach. The why before the what.
My eye is attracted to opposites of textures and forms, as my mind draws to time lines. Contrasts and contradictions are what fuel my concepts, but it is the emotional and intellectual dialogue that I am after. My final destination.
A calm environment contrasts our contemporary world, as art and the handmade inspires thought and contemplation. This is the function of a well designed space. Utility and inspiration. To focus upon what our eye desires and what our lives need. To solve a problem and to vacillate the coming future.
This is what design can do. What creativity aspires to be. A tool to solve a problem, whether it is space, emotion and the uncertain future or facilitating a better understanding of who we are and who we wish to become.
My design aesthetic tends toward the calm, to again contrast our contemporary world. But it is not the aesthetics that have the final word, its how they resonate and inspire those who dwell within.
