I’m interested in the interrelationship between art, architecture, design and the written word. How they together inform and inspire, evoking emotion and the provocation of action.
How we navigate the contemporary terrain is facilitated by the creative mind, built by the hand, spurred by desire and pulled by hope.
It is how we live within our private spaces that speaks volumes to the way we think, and therefore behave.
“There should not be any boundaries between design,
graphic design, visual arts, and architecture.
It should all blend together.”
Architect Nicolas Schuybroek
It is my belief that our living spaces have a greater impact on our lives than we think. It is here that our minds are allowed to be clearer, going deeper into ourselves and not just in sleep.
Within our private spaces, we live outward our private thoughts, as we usually feel safer cocooned within our own four walls. Life has a way of making us feel small, or is it that we allow it to feel as so.
Our homes allow us to recharge, re-center and calm, giving us the needed boost to rise above what life has in store.
“The world breaks everyone and afterward many
are strong at the broken places.
But those that will not break it kills.
No matter one’s belief system as to how life plays out, immersing ourselves within beauty, and those who inspire is the catapult to change, an elixir, and a means to maneuver the spiraling path onward. This is not a means to an end, nor answer to life’s riddle, but perhaps a surveyor’s tool: a shinning light forward.
“Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
