Interior Designer

I approach interior design as an artistic endeavor to make functional, meaningful and aesthetic spaces. Each design project is an opportunity to create a visual experience and physical sanctuary. With careful attention to detail, I place texture, color, pattern and form into spaces that reflect the relationship between my clients and their workplaces and homes. Growing up in High Point, NC, the furniture and design industry influenced my career in a big way. I worked my way through design school in furniture galleries and showrooms. After graduating I pursued commercial architecture and design gaining hands-on experience in the built environment. My visual and contextual approach to designing interiors was strengthened through curating in other areas of the arts, including Cucalorus Film Festival and several museums and art galleries. Engaging in display and exhibition methodology further refined my design techniques. At Big Sky, I make spatial experiences using form, texture, color, light feeling, and sound, telling the meaningful stories of each client. Thinking BIG, allows me to see all the possibilities for each project while making functional and aesthetic decisions for each space.
