///Welcome/// Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm Hanna and I am a young design professional trying to run forward in this never-steady world. I am a hopeful graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York and also a very proud graduate of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Both my degrees have helped me to become a well-rounded designer. While my studies in the History of Art in Michigan challenged me to become a more critical thinker, the curriculum at the School of Visual Arts taught me the skills to realize those thoughts and concepts into cohesive interiors projects. 

Now after rigorous training in the field and through my array of experiences at  different architecture/design firms in New York, I have the ability to work hard, work efficiently but also thoughtfully. I look forward to more opportunities that will shape me into a stronger designer.
