...so you want a beautiful home
Life changes, so should your home
Nothing ever stays the same. Yet we’ll often let our homes live in a time warp that doesn’t reflect how we live our lives today.
Maybe you’re recently married and need to combine two households. Maybe you’ve just bought a house and want to upgrade parts of it. Maybe you’re an empty-nester ready to turn that teen space into your space. Or maybe you’re retired and don’t want your home to look retired too.
Simply put, your life has changed and you’re ready for your home to reflect your lifestyle now.
You’re smart. You’re educated. You might be handy or you might not be. But you have all kinds of inspiration, and HGTV and Pinterest make it look soooo easy. You’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get started.
It’s going to be beautiful. It’s going to be unique. It’s going to be perfect. But what if it isn’t?
Suddenly you think maybe it isn’t so easy and making a mistake could cost lots of money. Getting it wrong and having to fix it is always more expensive than getting it right the first time.
So how do you get it right the first time? Something you might not have seen on HGTV or Pinterest–something that made those projects look so easy and turn out so beautiful. Do you know what that is?
A designer. That’s right. They had an interior designer who created a plan so they could get those beautiful spaces the first time. And that’s where I can help you.

I could write something really creative about myself, but I’m just going to lay it out there. I create beautiful art and beautiful homes for people just like you.
I’m an artist, an interior design and a philosopher. And, I’ve discovered the secret of life… Just kidding. I haven’t really found the secret of life.
But I do have a unique philosophy about life. It’s lived in the small moments. It’s those every day moments that we’ll look back on, so we have to embrace them. And home plays a huge part in that, because it’s where we live our lives.
I've always been an artist.
I drew my first charcoal drawing of a rose for my mom when I was six. After that, I always asked for art supplies for my birthdays and Christmas. To be honest, I wasn’t ever happy with that drawing, but my mom loved it and it hung in our living room for years. I’ve always been my own worst critic.
Decorating was the same.
I was about eight when I started rearranging my grandma’s guest bedroom and my parents’ living room whenever they’d let me. I reupholstered my headboard when I was 11 because I wanted a different style. By 13 I could identify architectural styles and eras, and I could identify load-bearing walls.
I didn't follow my bliss.
Because I thought it was sensible, I went to a private business college rather than following my bliss. Even though I viewed everything through the eyes of an artist and designer, I thought of them as hobbies. A part of me was afraid I’d stop loving those things if I did them for a living.
Boy was I wrong. Instead of financial security, I was always struggling. I wasted lots of time and money because I had chosen the wrong career. If I had started out in interior design, things would have been much easier, and I would have been much happier and healthier.
Eventually, after too many years of hating my job, I realized I needed to follow my bliss because I was happiest being an artist and an interior designer.
Like a lot of people, I made a foolish mistake and did what I thought was I thought was responsible. I accepted what I thought I could afford and thought that was good enough. Now I know I don’t have to settle, and I’m doing what I absolutely love doing.
A lot of people make the same mistake and settle when it comes to their home or art. Even if they want something different, they figure what they have is good enough or that they can’t afford anything different. It doesn’t have to be that way.
I learned I didn’t have to settle when I wanted something different, and neither do you. You deserve more than just existing in your home, and I can help.
