A little more about me;
At the age of 9, I started sewing and making patterns for my doll’s clothes and it wasn’t long before I started creating coats, suits and bed linens. As a teenager, I was staying home sewing instead of going out to parties, an obvious foreshadowing of everything design incorporates.
My philosophy towards Life and Design; both are made of choices.
Either you happily recommend the best option for your client, or you give preference to your own items first.
Either you believe in what you sell, or you don't.
Either you treat your best partners better, or you treat everyone the same.
Either you shade the truth when it's painful to do otherwise, or you consistently share what's important.
Either you always keep your promises or you don't.
Either you give the best price the first time, or you make the buyer jump through hoops to get there.
I choose all in BOLD! Unless someone cares, things start to fray around the edges....I care.
...which is precisely what makes it valuable.
In my down time? I love gardening, spending time with my kids, going to their tennis tournaments and helping others make changes toward healthier, organic, and holistic lifestyles.
I love talking to people and listening to their stories.
I’m fascinated by shape, proportion and scale; I have a gift for fitting things together and in their place.
I always look to nature for inspiration.....
It is the perfect aesthetic in every way, crafted over millions of years to the pinnacle of form and function.
I’m slightly over the edge with organization, very efficient, and precise.
