To whom it may concern:
My name is Jane Davis and I am an Interior Designer from Long Beach, CA..
I have accumulated 4+ years experience in Interior Design for residential and commercial projects and 1+ year as a Visual Display Designer and Assistant Store Manager. In addition to my Office/Corporate design experience I have spent many years as a freelance artist creating commissioned artwork. I am a confident and capable designer and am comfortable taking direction as well as leading others.
I consider myself to be a very energetic and fun person. Without boasting too much it has been said that I brighten up people's days when they are around me because of my kindness and positive attitude. I like to think that one of my greatest strengths is my ability to truly listen to others and effectively address what is being said. This trait has proven very helpful in my profession as I have often had to discuss the needs and interests of clients and deliver them with an enticing and personal response or solu. All that being said, I also know how to conduct myself in a professional and serious manner when it is called for.
Please take the time to review my qualifications and work samples and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!
