Design Implementations

Many of my clients are guided by my ideas for changes, not just to the living items, but also to designs which flow into structural changes such as colors, ornamentation, etc.  I am a proponent of public art and some of my more adventurous clients have incorporated murals or sculptures onto their sites.  I applaud this and wish to encourage more people to enrich their space with art

Selected Residential Projects
