Media: Marker on paper; Paper adhered to 30"x30" wood boards
Commissioned to produce artwork based on the popular "Dick and Jane" characters from the 1930's through to the 1970's. The artwork consists of marker-on-paper illustrations adhered to four natural finished wood boards at 30"x30" each, and the scenes depict the theme "Hide n seek". The artwork is currently on display at the contemporary Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, CO, which was recently ranked in USA Today's list of the 10 best art hotels in the US (February 2015).

The following sketches convey ink renderings of Greek and Roman ruins from a one-month tour of Turkey, with a primary investigation of the country’s architectural elements and history. Turkey presents a unique mixture of ancient splendor and modern identity. The tour included a comprehensive study of sites that date as far back as 7,000 B.C. (Catalhuyuk). We explored ancient Ottoman ruins in Istanbul, such as the Basilica Sistern and the extraordinary interior of Hagia Sophia from the Byzantine Empire. The Blue Mosque in Istanbul was one of the many elegant mosques visited throughout Turkey, reflecting the richness of the Islamic region. The tour also involved a study of ancient Greek and Roman sites, a reminder of the empire’s significant impact on vast regions. The grand architectural dominance of the Greek Didyma temple was complimented by the Roman baths in Perge, and the surprisingly intact Celsus Library in Ephesus.
Urban Refuge, Studio Collaboration Project
Yeditepe University, Istanbul:
This one-week team project involved collaborating with Turkish architecture students for a Retreat design in the heart of Istanbul. The project requirements called for a public gathering space within a vacant lot that can serve as a refuge for people from the busy city streets. The following sketches convey ideas for the Retreat design, incorporating Turkish architectural elements and ideals such as an “oda” (individual room) and “sofa” (the space between the rooms), a reflection pool, and natural vegetation and materials.
