Two gates for a development main entrance and the sculpture garden. They measure, 9×9 ft and 9×16 ft . This is my original design, though grew it by working closely with the architects and developers.


This is an artist loft development in the New Orleans Bywater neighborhood. The developers worked hard to incorporate artists in designing parts for the building during the whole construction period. And later directly purchased work for the sculpture garden


My process for this piece was typical to my general approach to all projects. I work hard to assess the needs, design requirements and aesthetic desires of my clients during the initial meetings then design several choices. I then submit the designs for feedback and we grow the designs together. The amount of design collaboration in this project was minimal because my clients liked my ideas.
