Specializing in. . .

     creative and practical solutions for your space

I focus on creating high quality, inviting and livable spaces with long-lasting appeal. Drawing upon a richness of experience in the design field, I enjoy collaborating with clients to bring excitement to their personal projects, as we seek innovative solutions. Tools to success include the thorough understanding of clients' project goals and maintaining open communication during all phases of the process. Even though my work has earned national and regional awards, I believe that the spaces I design should reflect each client's personal taste and design sensibilities.

It's my desire to have an environmentally responsible approach and I strive to tastefully combine timeless quality with new technologies. Every effort is made to listen carefully, problem-solve creatively, and build a compatible team on your behalf. A keen eye and well-honed sense of style are supported with design basics such as proportion, balance, rhythm, color, and texture. Over the years, I have built a network of trusted affiliates that can be called upon to assist on specialized projects.

Choosing to consult with me aligns you with a professional who is committed to providing beautiful yet affordable and practical solutions, so that your desired project can be built in a way that pleases you.
