Originally trained as an architect, my design process always began with tiny concept models. My architecturally inspired artwork goes back full circle, I now build miniature vignettes in metal and found objects. Still an architect at heart, my work is still the built environment…just miniaturized.
Extensive research of classic and iconic spaces inspires my one-of-a-kind miniature rooms or vignettes, a contrast in styles, industrial converging with classic old-world designs. Combining styles and scales overlap in many settings from modern to traditional. I also use fragments of architectural salvage, bicycle parts, copper sheet, mesh and rivets, mirror, aluminum, my handmade miniature paper books, and miniature glasses and bottles.
