STATEMENT OF ART:
Simple, honest, stated, inspirational, functional, sustainable, affordable are the key ingredients to a good design. A good design lives forever and has a story to tell. Stories of grandmother's favorite chair or mom's favorite dress, it can be any memory or moment that made a real difference. Design should be deeper than what meets the eye. These days there is so much talk about eco and sustainable design which is great direction to go towards.
