My name is Lisa Canoy. I am an architectural designer, creative enthusiast, and avid traveler living in Venice, CA. My professional experience in architecture covers all project phases and involves diverse fields, including art installations, furniture design, graphic design, and photography. By working across multiple disciplines, I have acquired varied skills that have enriched and strengthened architectural practice and creative collaboration. By working in both the United States and the Philippines, I have cultivated a broader outlook on design as well as fostered a keen enthusiasm for continued exploration and growth. An enthusiasm that I use to drive each project and task.
