Modern Design with a Western Flare
Great design to me has to be visually stimulating, with thoughtfully placed and orchestrated objects that are personal by nature and moving to those who view them. Like great art or a great song, the composition if done well will stand the test of time.
I love graphic and organic deigns together, that have simple lines and are straight forward and are both functional yet personal. Living in the West has given me the opportunity to explore more freely the integration between Modern and Ethnographic Art and objects.
I have a fondness for midcentury modern's cutting edge use of materials and simplistic forms combined with graphic and colorful Native American art and objects, allowing each to have their own dialog when put together.
Great design does not compete with the architecture, it compliments it in a cohesive blend that is pleasing to the environment.
