CURATOR / DESIGN CONSULTANT
As a curator and design consultant I’ve worked with private, corporate and commercial clients in a variety of industries for over thirty years. My work has revolved around the use of art to bring beauty into any environment and visually communicate the deeper currents of story, history and purpose that infuse every business, store and residence I’ve had the pleasure to work with. My clients include: AT&T Labs, Disney Corp.,The Carneros Inn Napa, Sleep Studio, Eileen Fisher and many private art collections and residences.
My approach is holistic and immersive, supported by what nature and neuroscience reveal about the profound effects our surroundings have on us. Each new project offers me the challenge and opportunity to engage with a new story and new areas of expertise then translate these into artwork, interior design or merchandise that ultimately provides an enriching experience for those who spend time in each environment. My personal studies in eastern medicine, alternative wellness, sustainability and life-long travel have been deeply influential as well.
