I’ve always been drawn to art and history. Imagine my parents despair when they realized early on that I was unlikely to follow in the family tradition of becoming a doctor, but would instead descend into the undesirable world of the starving artist.
Well, I’ve been very fortunate and am able to fuel my two loves working in the gift & collectible industry, where my creative bent has found a comfortable home.
Throughout my career I seem to have gravitated towards designing and producing miniature replicas of both real and fantasy buildings. For the past 15 years I’ve had the privilege of being the product development director for Harbour Lights, who made a collection of intricately detailed replicas of real lighthouses from around the world.
While the majority of the work I’ve produced over the years has been primarily sculptural in form, I still love the artistic freedom of going back to basics and laying out a blank sheet of paper, setting out my pens, inks and watercolors and bringing to life these remarkable and intriguing buildings.
