Concepts As both an artist and an architect, my concerns are with inhabited places. I am interested in the useful as well as the poetic. From small scale work to larger temporary or permanent public work or exhibitions. I concentrate on the ordinary things that anchor us and our feelings in the world. This has led me to education and community engagement as well as my own work.
