A Little About Myself.
I have so many creative ideas on how to improve the look and functionality of a space. Sometimes the smallest changes can yield the greatest results.
My background is in graphic arts and communication for over 25 years. While working and living in southern Ontario I flipped several homes, two of which were built from the ground up. I found a passion for building and renovations and of course design. Some of the customers I’ve worked with were builders themselves. I’ve managed complete renovations and many fabulous transformations of a single room. Always a wonderful experience. Always a great result.
When we decided to return to the North I jumped at the opportunity to design a new home exactly how we wanted it. This was a two year development from purchase to completion. Working with an amazing contractor – Rod Stevens Construction, and so many other stellar service providers; Kings Plumbing, Littleton Electric, North Channel HVAC, Stoker Drywall, all so great at what they do. So thankful! We’re in the house now. Enjoying life!

First Steps to Improving Your Space
Typically I take an inventory of what you have to work with and then observe what isn’t working at all. Some people just need help with paint and furniture arrangement. Some people need help organizing their things or assistance selecting new items. I also love to repurpose items, breathing new life into something that otherwise has little intrinsic value. From paint colours, furniture, light fixtures, flooring even windows and doors – I can help you choose something perfect for your space. Even if you’re not in the midst of a home interior overhaul, it never hurts to ask me for some inspiration. Just a little something to spruce things up.

The sky is the limit! I will even take an old photo or damaged photo and restore it. I can add or remove people in a photograph and make it look like it was meant to be. Let’s turn some old photos into art.
