"It is my aim to follow in the footsteps of the great masters of the Renaissance who looked to the past to clearly see the way forward. Their craft was disciplined and their works timeless. They were not just Artists OR Architects, they were Artists AND Architects. Where are these masters today? I hope I can capture a small fraction of their legacy."
