With a background in textile design and colour theory from OCAD, and as a certified interior decorator, my sense of design is inspired by travel, local cultures, design, history, nature, art and craft.

Design is a lifelong obsession for me. I can’t help but mentally redesign objects that appear off balance, adjust a colour until the perfect hue is found, or visualize a space in a new style. I’ve always been fascinated with colour and pattern, form and shape, architecture and furniture, and how they define our personal and public environments.

We owe so much to history. Not just the history of furniture and furnishings that continue to inform modern design, but the designers that created them. One of life’s real pleasures for me is to walk into a space that makes me truly happy because it is functional, beautiful and styled with care and thought. To consider design is to live with it, appreciate it and challenge it.
