About 

Greetings!

My name is Amy and I am a graduate of Woodbury University (2015) with a BFA in Interior Architecture and The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (2007) with an AA in Interior Design. I've worked on public art instillation pieces, worked in residential design for 4 years, worked in commercial design for 2 years, and I'm a partner in a freelance object-making art group called Paisley Garbage.

My interests in the world of Interiors focuses on the integration of new technologies, adapting design via Biomimicry, the changing landscape of interiors due to communication advancements, the growing movement to re-purpose existing structures, and of-course making our spaces beautiful!
