With new projects my approach to design is to search for the essence of the location; build client, architect, artist, and user consensus; and generate ideas and discourse in the belief that collaboration enriches the entire process. My goal is to take advantage of the unique opportunities in the design and architecture of the client's needs and its space environment. I envision striking installations that uses both high-tech and fine craftsmanship to engage the public on emotional, intellectual, and visual levels. I have designed and installed past projects where a repetition of colors, textures, and forms create a rhythm enchanting the viewer’s experience.
Sam Houston State University
The project at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville consists of three mosaic murals inside the lobby of university's new Biology Lab Building. The mosaic is crafted in hand-cut, hand-glazed ceramic and glass tile. Below are images of the project proposal and the installation. We worked with Marie Hoke, AIA for the project's architectural design; this is the second project we have worked on with Marie. Mosaika Art and Design fabricated and installed the mosaic.
The project at Lamar University will be an indoor vertical mosaic mural. The mosaic will be an image of lily pads and a water lily reflecting water. Below is the approved painting that is the pattern for the mosaic. The mosaic fabrication process is underway.
