1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
My personal style is constantly evolving and can change with the seasons and my moods. I do however have a strong tendency to mix the old with the new. I am an old spirit but love elements of more cutting edge design that will work outside the box.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I get to really know my clients and how their brain works. If I can't understand them, then I can't give them the space that they want and need.
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
I respect all creative people because our minds work a lot differently and to be honest-it's exhausting at times! I have mega-admiration for those who do not follow the status quo, and think outside the box. If they can do that while at the same time developing a design that works for the clients personal needs and wants, they have my absolute admiration and respect.
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
Architecture and nature are top inspirations for me. Different styles of Architecture will induce different inspirations in me, and there is so much to absorb in nature (color, shapes, feeling etc) that it really kick starts the creative process.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
Staying true to myself and respecting the boundaries of clients. I also don't base my designs on fads or trends. I base them on what feels, and looks good, and what is best for my clients. I have made it a point from day one to never pay attention to what others are doing or compare myself to others because it has no bearing on my own personal career and who I am.
