Certificate in Residential Interior Décor from the Illinois Institute of Art (2008)

Welcome!  Beautiful design is a passion for me, especially when it comes to residential design. From the older house my husband and I are currently renovating to the many homes I have helped clients beautify, I cannot help but reimagine spaces. I love designing, decorating, & remaking that which is in need of refreshment. I believe a home ought to reflect its inhabitants, their lifestyle, and their loves. A home should be comfortable, enjoyable, functional, and lovely. If it can be kept organized, all the better! It is the backdrop for everyday life, a place we will spend many moments, creating many memories.

The name "Canvas & Light Interiors" was inspired by my love for beautiful lighting as well as the fact that interior design reminds me of creating paintings on a canvas.  I am gathering colors and patterns and putting them together with careful composition and attention to detail.  I highlight natural light and beautiful architecture, and design creatively to compensate for what a space lacks.   I've been designing for clients since 2012, and it is one of life's greatest joys for me.  I look forward to assisting you in coming up with a plan to beautify your living spaces and make them function according to your lifestyle and goals!
