Victor Hill, V3 Studios
As an artist I enjoy the tactile art of drawing out my designs and crafting cabinetry. Being able to engage the space that the cabinetry will reside and design the composition of the space like an oil painting focusing on elements of line, color, texture and light is a unique experience that I enthusiastically engage in with each client.
