Meet your Designer
Why did you start this business?
I started this business because of my son. When he was six months old, he injured himself at a sitter and I resigned and started my business that same day.
What is your favorite color?
This one is tough. I am a huge fan of so many but when people ask this question I always think of The Lorax. Dr. Suess was my favorite growing up and it’s the first book I remember so is that an answer? I also love The Shipping News, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Great Expectations, The Great Gatsby and A Land Remembered.
Do you listen to music while you work?
YES! I think it helps get me into the flow of work. Sometimes I also listen to movies or a tv series in the background, but I don’t really watch them.
What type of music do you tend to listen to?
Everything. I like so many different artists my list would leave you saying, huh? Pearl Jam, John Denver, Post Malone, Texas is the Reason, Dolly Parton, Khalid, PJ Harvey, Portishead, to name a few and I realize none of this makes sense.
Creatives often have many hobbies; do you have any?
Yes, of course, probably too many. I started off in the realm of photography, it’s my first love. I still love taking photos and then turning those into color palettes or even drawing them. I also enjoy anything that I can do with my kids like working with clay or collages. Always up for something new in the art realm.
Where were you born?
Winter Park, Florida but claim Inverness, Florida as home since it’s where I spent a good chunk of my childhood.
Do you have a favorite food?
Pizza, always pizza. I also love guacamole and not on my pizza, lol.
Where is your favorite place on the planet?
Jekyll Island and I live 10 minutes away so lucky me. I also love visiting Western North Carolina, Asheville, Sylva and Dillsboro. There is something about the Blue Ridge Parkway that always feels like home to me.
If you could tell every client one thing, what would it be?
Be brave. Do you what you love and do it how you want to do it, don’t follow others as if they have all the answers. Finding your niche takes time but if you are honest with yourself and your mission it will come to fruition in an organic way. When it is right, things fall into place and that is how you know you are on the right path.
