I have been inspired to challenge myself. Last fall I took a freehand drawing class that I had a love hate relationship with. I loved finding out that I could actually draw pretty well, but I hated having to keep up a sketchbook (we were required to sketch 4-5 pages a day). This was a bit of a challenge for me as I've got the two kids and not much free time to, as my teacher said, sit at a cafe and sketch things I see. My reality was more like sitting a the kitchen table and sketching the dirty breakfast dishes after I dropped the kids at school.
However, I just found out about the Sketchbook Project: 2011 Tour. They send you a sketchbook, you fill it with drawings, and send it back by January 15th. Then your sketchbook along with all the others submitted goes on exhibition in a tour that visits Brooklyn, Austin, San Francisco, Portland, Atlanta, and Chicago. How cool it that!
I live outside of Boston with my husband, two children, and dog. For the past 8 years I have been working with clients to help them make their home dreams a reality. From helping to build homes from the ground up to helping round out already finished spaces, I listen to my clinets and let their vision guide our process. I have always been a creative person planning spaces and working to make them function better. After completing the Residential Interiors program at Boston Architectural College I learned how to combine my love for funcion and flow with my eye for color, scale, and balance. As a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, I understand project planning and budget management. My experience working with clients, contractors, and architects helps to coordinate and streamline the home building and renovation process, helping my clients to have the home they dream of with less of the stress that comes with building and decision making.
