Artist Statement

As an independent graphic designer with nearly 20 years of experience in corporate, editorial and cultural design, I deliver positive and memorable communication solutions grounded by a commitment to ideas and design.

I have now expanded my passion for visual communication to art and illustration, thereby granting me more freedom to explore and create work that goes beyond established boundaries.

Aligning myself with discerning clients who appreciate emotional as well as intellectually driven art & design, I approach each project with keen perception and critical thinking, in an atmosphere anchored in objectivity, simplicity and clarity to create appropriate communication solutions.
