Q:Tell us about the moment when you decided to follow a career in the field of interior design.
There really wasn’t a definite; defining moment for me in terms of me seeing Interior Design as my career. My history in is Visual Art (rather than a more conventional background in Design) with a focus on Installation Art. So my path into Interior Design started with my turning my own apartment into a gallery space.
I have always enjoyed creating artistic compositions out of functional design/interior elements; and after I created small arrangements of objects and furniture; rooms just came together for me by creating links and synergies between these autonomous visual arrangements.
Friends who loved my own home asked me to then style their own…and a career path was born from this.
