I’ve spent most of my life observing the aesthetic – people, nature, products, fashion, architecture…everything. It is the critical function of a designer and artist. Both a subconscious and conscious research tool, as well as a critical method of “measurement” – for style, performance, quality and desire. It’s this life-long demand for the elegant aesthetic that has trained me to look – and to see – detail and pattern in objects that might otherwise go unnoticed or hidden by the combination (or concert) of their surroundings.
