  6. 6. My mission is simple; it’s to Awaken, to Bring Forth, to Enlighten. It’s stated that a level of consciousness is an awareness of the environment that may be altered by sleep, hypnosis, or substance. The way I approach art and design is the same way I try to approach life; keep it simple and uncomplicated. Art should never be complex nor should it seem to be unobtainable. Our brain constructs our perceptions. Our ability to know where we are, what is going on and other conscious facts are determined by what our brain interprets and decides about the information it receives from what the body is sensing. I strive to give my work simple titles in order to allow the observer to bring as much as their own personal interpretation into the work as possible. In turn, awakening their creative spirit. “A discerning eye needs only a hint, and understanding leaves the imagination free to build its own elaborations”.- Russell Page In my earlier works, “The Body and Soul Series”, I wanted to convey a sense of form and movement through the use of color, and I try to carry that same aesthetic through all my pieces, and in my opinion, an artist is nothing, if not consistent. In my work, by layering textures and details I can convey to the viewer, not only movement, but emotions that will enable and inspire them to express their creative spirit.

  41. 41. Original Floor Plan: The Issue: The clients would like to capitalize on their lake view and would like that to serve as the focal point. The north view from the kitchen affords views of Lake Shore Drive, Lake Michigan, and the beach. Navy Pier can also be seen from the dining room. Currently, the oversized breakfast bar is blocking their million dollar view, and due to their busy social calendar, the kitchen is not spacious enough to entertain the way they would like. The Proposed Solution: A complete kitchen renovation, eliminating the laundry room including the interior walls; eliminating breakfast bar and over-all configuration, and in its place a large, “Trough Sink” center island with mini- beverage fridge and seating for 6. The clients also expressed a need for a separate food preparation and clean-up area with the ability to accommodate several catering staff members for all tasks related to preparation, serving, and clean- up. For this, I am proposing building a “False Wall” off the foyer that will, not only house a pocket-sliding frosted glass door with a Modern Mondrian motif, but will also conceal the walk through butler’s pantry. Also, the view from the foyer will show a modern glass and /or stainless steel, brushed nickel, eco-friendly fireplace that features a Bio Ethanol Insert (completely composed of biological products resulting in a neutral ecological balance. The combustion of Bio Ethanol results in completely clean emissions: Heat, Steam and Carbon Dioxide.) Finally, on the fireplace façade, a neutral- colored, tumbled linear Lime-Stone done in a “dry-stacked stone” pattern with iridescent mosaics complimenting the sides of the stone will further enhance clients
  42. 42. Note: Highlighted areas can and will be removed. Laundry Room including all interior walls and doors Breakfast Counter Interior Wall separating the main hall-way and Dining area Note: Walls that will be constructed Concept: Sleek, Modern- Bauhaus Inspired /Open - Plan Loft Space Client Requirements: •Island •Bar Area including wine fridge, display cases for top-shelf liquor, mini bar and beverage fridge(fruit, juices, mixers, etc,) •Separate plating and serving station •2-Warming drawers •2-Dishwashers •Utility/Clean-up sink with garbage disposal •Ice-Maker *Important* -Only electric appliances are permitted and cooking ventilation must be re-routed or re-circulated into the existing “6 x”6 vent -Clients request for ONLY high-end materials and appliances. -Clients host party’s and entertain regularly! EXTRA NOTES: This is just the 1st rough draft. Project is not complete.
