Design for theatre should be poetic. It should envelop us in the world of the play and transport us away from our everyday lives. Scenery can be lush and opulent, stark and minimal, realistic, abstract and everything in between. It is the character onstage that may not have any lines, but speaks volumes.
I am fortunate to create art for a living. I am humbled to collaborate with brilliant people, and I am honored to share our work with an audience.
