Clients have engaged with me because they love the collaborative process I have developed over six years, which gives them the opportunity to celebrate events or people that have impacted upon their life in a sincerely unique way.
I feel, without the input of the client and their reasons for collaborating, the pieces, although aesthetically pleasing, would carry no meaningful weight, which is so important to me in my body of work.
I have been commissioned for many reasons from creating a visual reminder of a first dance with a soul mate after nuptials to celebrating the lives of loved ones who have passed - sometimes in tragic circumstances, and any other reason you can think of for loving music in between.
It's taken quite some time to get to this point but for me, I really I can't think of anything more rewarding than creating for those who "Get" what i'm trying to achieve. It's a humbling pleasure.
Note: Chris is also a graduate of Industrial Design from IT Carlow, Ireland's longest running design programme. This combination of Design, Art and Process not only gives the client an aesthetically pleasing final "product" and family heirloom, but a wonderful "Out of the box experience" unmatched by standard impersonalonline retail procedures.
