I was fortunate to spend my early childhood in Petoskey, Michigan. In college I majored in fine arts at Denver University and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. My last year of college was spent near Oslo, Norway studying textiles, design and film. From there I went on to a career in film production in Los Angeles for Columbia Pictures and Lucas Productions in San Rafael. After several years in the film industry, I settled back in the Midwest to start a family. I later received an Associate Degree from Purdue University in Interior Design before moving back home to Harbor Springs.
With over 20 years of designing interiors, I place great importance on communication, follow-through and maintaining close working relationships with my clients. I have learned to look at design as through the lens of a camera. I place importance on room harmony and transition of color, light and form between spaces. Nature has always been an inspiration to me, and the profound simplicity of Northern Michigan is the perfect backdrop for interior design. My husband, my mini Australian Labradoodle and I take in the beauty, active lifestyle and quiet harmony living in Northern Michigan celebrates.
