Art is what got me into Interior design. Everything related to color, pattern, furniture, materials and creating a certain type of mood that would best the environment.

Currently working on renovating a salon that I am super excited about because of the freedom of designing that we are receiving and a mural that we will paint.

Everyone is flexible and laid back. It’s very intimate which means I’ll get one on one experience with everyone. The location is perfect.
