Points of View

It’s so difficult to just choose one, but I am partial to design as an art form. From fashion to interior to industrial, creative design is so interesting to me because it is where an individual can really “play.” Design can add even more beauty to day to day life. Whether it’s the Denver Art Museum’s piercing architecture or a pink feathered dress I see in a shop window, I love it all.
Growing up, I was fortunate to have great exposure to the arts playing in my school’s orchestra and performing in theater. I still contribute to the arts as an actor when I get the chance but find myself as more of a consumer these days which is equally as rewarding. Living an artistic life is important to me and my good friends can attest to my dramatic side that comes out every now and then – but hey, I’m an artist.
