Snapshots from Miami

Travel always inspires my work, and recently I’ve found a lot to love in Miami Beach. I’ve started going there for a project, and at every turn there’s something fun to look at.

About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street.
