  • My Bio

    The Art of Perfection

    Over the last 5 years, I have truly challenged myself and attempted to understand what it meant to have ‘career fulfillment.’ I had worked nearly 30 years as a tax accountant where I offered technical advice to my clients or the Fortune 100 companies that I was fortunate enough to service. In my field near perfect execution of services was essential for success.

    Yet something was not quite right. In my spare time I was teaching myself to build computers, learning carpentry, and exploring interior and textile design. It was as if there were pools of creativity bottled-up inside of me waiting to be uncorked. And during my enrollment in Hunter College's graphic design program in 2013, I began to fit all the pieces together.

    So in March of 2016, I quit my job at a prestigious investment firm in New York City to start my own graphic design business. And Graphique Couture, LLC was born. The name (Graphique Couture) is a nod to some of the inspirational french artists and designers who did not follow the norm. I have drawn inspiration from fashion designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier, and musical artists like Twin Twin and Mylène Farmer and the great painter Claude Monet; each (in their own way) produced graphic visuals that were unique, a bit quirky and unforgettable.

    And whether I am working with textiles, silkscreen, paint or photography, I leverage my graphic and computer illustration skills to create modern, clean and simple art. I love to create art infused with humor. And living by a new motto that 'perfect is boring' has become the ultimate liberation for me and my art.

    Photography

    My passion for photography began with an opportunity to cover a major music festival in Europe and provide photojournalism for a UK newspaper. I bought my first Nikon DSLR and shot my first red

    Photography Continued

    carpet and concert footage in 2013. I found trying to capture that amazing performance moment, while anticipating the next lighting element, intoxicating. And since I travel to many unusual foreign destinations, I love photographing unique architecture and landscapes. My graphic design background trained me to look for simple straightforward photographic compositions. I strive to allow the subject to tell the story without the distraction of a busy background. Shadowy high contrast compositions draw me in whether in black & white or color.

    Digital Art

    When I think of the masters I admire most, Annie Leibovitz is at the top of the list. I am constantly in awe of her sense of composition and color grading. In my opinion, she captures light and mood like no other. Going back in time, I would say it was the masters like Caravaggio and Velázquez that first captured my imagination with the incredible realism their paintings displayed. Apparently the 16th century master, Caravaggio, used modern darkroom techniques to create his masterpieces, more than 200 years before the invention of the camera.

    Like Caravaggio, I am drawn to the intersection of traditional art, photography and technology. I often incorporate pixel manipulation into my photography to add another dimension (time) to the image. 3D software programs like Maya and Cinema 4D allow me to create realistic 3D art and light a composition in the style of Caravaggio.

    Silkscreen

    No one sets out to design and create an unfortunate brand name for their product. Yet many companies innocently choose a product name without realizing that the name has a double meaning i.e. a “double entendre.” And more often than not, the double entendre results in an unintended sexual message or provocative expression.

    I created a series of illustrations titled “Double Entendre” which depict real product packaging from around the globe. These silkscreen limited edition prints are an attempt to create the modern day “Wacky Packy."
