I have always loved the challenge of transforming a blank piece of paper or canvas into an image with meaning and emotional ties to my vision. During my life as an architect I must create within the boundaries allowed me by my clients, their budget, Building Codes, cost, and the list goes on. As an artist I enjoy the freedom that the process of making art allows me. My vision, ability, and choices are the only constraints.
