I'm an artist who takes on a challenge by thinking outside of the box. My work experience for the past six+ years has been in luxury, soft home furnishings and am specialized in textile/surface design. I have a great eye for color matching, fabric sourcing, and designing floor plans. I am extremely detail oriented, self-motivated and organized.
