They are all diverse in nature from designing interiors balancing the elements wood, stone, earth water,and light .
The color is mapped out to bring out the design of the building design in the best way.
Consideration is given to how the light and color are reflected and absorbed by natural and interior lighting.
I work from the beginning with a vision concept from the president or CEO then with the general contractor.
I have had the good fortune to work outstanding CEO Don Parker of the Carrier Clinic mental care facility in Skillman NJ for the total overhaul of the buildings.It along with the care were transformed drastically into the future with solar ,green and latest cutting edge construction and design.When I saw the architectural drawings I was moved to a tear to see what changes were going to happen!
I was responsible for designing the artwork for the newly constructed buildings.Many of them were over sized mixed media pieces.I design a collection of art and theme.The process includes original paintings and mixed media graphics on fine art media.The layers include glazes of luminous color with pastels acrylic and wax.
This is a fulfilling process to see come to fruition.Projects often include design, a logo ,murals,art and signage all in one.This saves the client time and money.
Jenn Hanson founder of Enlightened Solutions Hanson Foundation approached me after losing almost everything in hurricane Sandy.
This year a golf course clubhouse was re-purposed as a rehab facility for drug addiction . A system of buildings for Enlightened Solutions and the Hanson foundation were transformed quickly to accommodate patient intake and counseling.This huge building reminds a both environmentally healthy and aesthetic space for all who enter it.
The golf course landscape was also transformed with organic farming bike paths and horses!
The rooms all flow with the entire building within and without like a good painting (This is a by product of starting with studying at a good design school at Parsons along with all of my painting done as an illustrator and fine artist painting in nature).My murals allow the walls to expand or go away and maximize the use of light and color.
