first three sets of renderings are ones I did for classes at Mount Mary
College. The last set was created for a freelance client in New Mexico.
They are exterior architectural renderings more than interiors. All
renderings are primarily created using Prismacolor markers with the
occasional use of colored pencils and other mixed media.
created for my sketching and rendering class. The first set (on the
black background) was my final project for that class. It was drawn
from a magazine photo for the most part. However, the elevations were
imagined, especially for the two walls that were not visible in the
photo I used. The black and blue room was also drawn from a magazine
image. Click on the images to see a larger version.
renderings below were produced for my Residential Studio Class. The
assignment was to design a family home going for LEED certification.
The focus of the project was to research and specify environmentally
friendly finishes and furniture. The theme I used was one of the use of
global design in sophisticated and surprising ways to point out the
fact that environmentalism is not just a local issue, but one that
effects the entire world.
renderings below were also produced for my Residential Studio Class.
This assignment was to create a condo floor plan focusing on design for
ADA compliance. Each class member had to decide on what disability to
cater to, and I chose to design for young, recently wheel-chair bound
people. The design theme was one of natural forces like volcanic
eruptions, astronomical phenomena, the power of water (as found in
waterfalls), and the strength and resiliency of trees. For someone
unexpected bound to a wheelchair by an accident or by illness, it must
seem a bit like a natural disaster. But, these forces are not only
destructive, but also constructive, allowing for growth, change, and
strength. Because the building in question also had up-front office
space, a center for support of the building's residents was designed to
provide seminars, learning, support, and socializing spaces.
renderings below were also produced for a freelance client developing
an area of rural New Mexico. These renderings were used to help
possible investors to visualize what the area can become.
