1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
I would have to describe our style as vintage inspired modern: a unique balance of vintage pieces, while keeping up on current trends and design.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I like to make mood boards to help gather all my inspiration into one place. It helps me stay organized – Pinterest is great for this!
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
I would have to say the brands that I work with! I am given great responsibility to meet the needs of these brands and they give me their full trust and creative freedom. Over time, you build a great relationship as we both work for the same goal and outcome. They are always so forgiving and encouraging, some of the most kind hearted people I’ve met.
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
If I am needing some inspiration, I love to visit my favorite antique, home decor shops or flea markets. I love to be part of something physically in order to clear my mind of other distractions. It’s great when inspiration can turn into something more tangible and real!
5) What has brought you to this point in your career?
Taking chances and overcoming fear! As one door shuts, another always opens! My advice to design enthusiasts is to stay true to you. Stay focused on your goals and dreams, never letting anyone stand in your way. Surround yourself with positive people who believe and encourage you.
