Design is both a noun and a verb and a visual tool for communication. The famous Graphic Designer, Paul Rand once said: "Good Design, is Good Business". The power of Graphic Design is immense, it can either confuse or clarify. Design can be created for purely aesthetic reasons or a funtional form. It depends on the purpose for the design, and who and what the deisgn is for. I love the unlimited possiblity of creating with words and image in a true collaboration with another. Let's work together on your project.

Visual Identity is the heart of branding and marketing. Included in this section is a small sample of my collaboration of client projects. Information design such as newletters, web sites and books, logo design, business cards, posters, advertisments for both print and web media, brochures and banners for selected companies showcase a true working partnership born in respect, deep listening and creativity.

I find humor through visual puns when looking through the lens of a camera. I am particularly attracted to objects with anthropomorphic qualities and enjoy changing the context of the familiar.

Tribal Regions are a series of digital paintings in the form of a mandala. I have trying here with these mandalas to conceptually show a sense of cultural landscape derived from the physical perception and knowledge I have of that place. Formally, I use radial symmetry, pattern and intricate color relationships and a meditative, intuitive knowing to express the feeling of the landscape through pure geometric form. I have been to each of the physical places of the mandalas I create. I hope to create more mandalas upon traveling to new places.

My work in digital media includes prints, photography and bodies of work combining both traditional and digital media. Digital tools are well-suited for geometric abstraction. The precision of computer-generated images provides a nice counter balance for the hand made mark.

The series of digital posters called The Wreck of AhTar, is an intentional study of disordered geometric form. By systematically photographing twelve equilateral triangles grouped in stages of collapse, the theme of destruction is explored in a constructed architectural space.
