Taking an eclectic approach towards surface art in all its creative phases, my goal is to create an illusion of multi-dimensionality on a flat, otherwise lifeless space

By juxtaposing translucent glazes with striking mediums, the outcome is rich and alive - with great definition and textural subtlety.

I also feel that being respectful of the clients needs and vision is crucial to the desired outcome. Time spent in preparation of a desired effect is key to creative the results you are looking for.

Please feel free to call for more information or to set up an appointment.
