Ever since I was young I've loved creating art. I would spend hours on decoupage and paper mache projects or doing hook rugs while watching the Brady Bunch. And I loved watching my mom change our family room and bedroom furniture arrangements every other month! I guess it's just in my blood.

I received my BA in English with a minor in Fine Art at Boston College and summer schooled at the Art Institute of Chicago. I started my career in Boston as an art buyer for a large advertising agency and then moved to Chicago to pursue art direction in Chicago. While creating commercials and print campaigns for global brands such as Kraft, Quaker and SC Johnson I honed my talent for aesthetics. One of my favorite jobs was to scout homes and art direct them for TV shoots. Recently, I freelanced as a graphic designer while raising a family of four, and my husband and I designed and decorated our last two homes. All of these experiences have led up to my next chapter: interior decorating! I look forward to working with you soon.
