HOUSES:

Everyone who has ever designed his or her home with me, or has bought one of my pre-designed houses, says the same thing: I LOVE this house. Why?

The spaces are always generous. I like to use high ceilings in most of the house. Light is very important to me, and so my houses are filled with light. I use lots of rounded walls, which give the houses a unique sculptural feel. Mexico is a place of out door as well as indoor living, so I provide my houses with plenty of patios and shaded terraces.

I want the clients to realize their dreams. I work very hard to fulfill their personal needs. While my preference is for simple, open, contemporary design, I also like the challenge of making alternative environments. I have created several houses that celebrate more traditional Mexican features which have completely satisfied my customers.

The house I just finished came in significantly under budget. I work with a builder who uses only the highest quality materials, and his work men are skilled, courteous and fast. We have worked together on all seven houses.  

Over the past decade, I have established professional relationships based on mutual respect and trust with many local contractors in Mexico.  This ensures availability of a large variety of materials as well as competitive pricing.  I am bilingual.

The experience of building a house can be a joy and a pleasure when you work with me.  You can ask my customers. 


ART:

My pieces are rooted in the motion of gesture.  They give body and vitality to the ephemeral. They solidify motion.  While some of the sculptures literally move, others imply movement.

I want to develop a dialogue between gravity and flight.  The forms are born out of lines in space.  I use line as a sign language, finding its phrases, articulating its meaning, playing with its poetry.   Wire bones and membrane skin create the structure; they also reveal the process of how the piece was made, its history.

Because I am dedicated to simplicity, everything has to be essential. Reduced. Condensed. Less is more. This keeps my work rigorous.
