TEXAS & NEW MEXICO STUDIOS
My studio is dedicated to the simple mission of creating beautiful objects. As a third-generation New Mexican, I have always drawn inspiration from the stark beauty of the canyonlands, mountains and deserts of the Southwest.
I was educated at the University of New Mexico and Arizona State University and hold a degree in architecture and a graduate degree in industrial design. In my career as a creative I have applied my simple, elegant style to award-winning projects in many fields. These include fine art, architecture, furniture, lighting, styling for print and exhibit, and tabletop products.
