Art and design has always been my passion. unleashing the creative and intuitive mind through a sculpture or painting, designing a small detail for a bespoke interior object, or imagining the architectural and interior design of an entire residence; I have been obsessed with creating art, furniture, and interior environments that capture the unique ambiguity of the poetic, romantic, and the minimal. In my opinion, good design is a delicate balance between the reductive, the seductive, the comedic, and the constant cohabitation between form and function.
Before asserting my direction as an interior architect and designer, I first and foremost am an artist. Studying classical techniques of drawing, photography, painting, and sculpture as well as art and architectural history, I began applying these principles and historic references to architecture and interior design, incorporating art and craft within the realms of the architectural and interior design.
As a graduate of both Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC)- where I achieved a BFA focusing in interior architecture and architectural history- as well as working at a variety of established interior design and architecture firms, I began by honing technique and craft in both fine art and architectural design. After graduation, I decided to create a design consulting business which includes services- both independent and in conjunction with other designers and architects- ranging from interior architecture, finish selections, furniture, art, and lighting curation to the creation of two dimensional collage work, metal sculpture from found metal and raw semi-precious stones, and bespoke fabricated furniture.
