INSPIRED by globe-trotting, day tripping, found objects and high fashion, I’ve been designing home decor for two decades. Originally from the island of Manhattan, I traded concrete and glass skyscrapers for skyscrapers of the deciduous and coniferous variety and now live happily on Bainbridge Island with my Chihuahuas, Tula and Milo.
HOME PRODUCTS I’ve designed products that have sold at national retailers all across the country and include window treatments, bedding, decorative pillows, shower curtains and table linens! Having designed products for the masses for over two decades has ensured I’m always up to date on the latest home trends, which informs both my product design and interior design work.
INTERIOR DESIGN has and always will be my first love. I studied (and later, taught) at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. I don't believe design is static or ever finished – it’s a journey, evolving and unfolding with the flow of our lives and that’s what makes it interesting and compelling to me.
