I practice art and architecture as integrated works.

My art informs my architecture and my architecture informs my art.

Pen and ink on paper is my primary medium. I sketch my subjects over and over again, trying to get it right.

I have always loved birds and wood storks are an obsession. They have a face only a mother could love. With their black wingtip feathers, their weathered grey faces and beaks, and their large white bodies, they embody a quiet elegance.
