While interior design has always been my passion, I’ve been an artist for most of my life. I received an MFA and a BFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a BA in psychology from Pitzer College. After receiving my MFA, I worked as a painter in NYC for many years. Much of my art work focused on interiors and exterior spaces, primarily of mid-century, modern homes. I exhibited and sold my work in galleries in Boston, Brooklyn, Frankfurt, NYC, Palm Desert, San Francisco and in art fairs all over the globe.
After getting pregnant with my third child, I decided to go in a different artistic direction and went back to school for Interior Design at The New York School of Interior Design. I now channel my knowledge and passion for art, design and decor into the homes and lives of the people I work with.
As an accomplished artist, I provide a different perspective that not every designer may have. My artistic sensibility and design know how allows me to create rooms and spaces that feel special and distinct. I have many out of the box ideas tailored to each individual client. I can create objects and art for homes that are specialized for their environment. I love to use wallpaper and fabric to bring warmth and coziness to my client's homes. At the same time, my look is multi-layered, embellished with the energy from patterns, color and accessories that give each room it’s own individualized personality and vibe. There is a spirit of play and fun in the rooms I create, but they are also very comfortable and livable at the same time.
