ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
Being trained in all aspects of traditional design and research, I like to translate those skills into original and sophisticated contemporary designs and color palettes - where I often find that less can be more. Right now, one of my fascinations is dots; seemingly unending possibilities.
What inspires you?
Nature is my biggest inspiration - from microbiology to Zabriskie Point - just thinking of a slice of watermelon radish; what wonderful patterns & colors are all around us!
Then I always get inspired visiting the San Francisco Design Center and browsing through the boutiques in Hayes Valley;
and I like to watch 'Deutsche Welle', broadcasts from Berlin - with daily cultural and design news from Europe.
What do you love about being a designer?
I love the entire process of creating. It is such a joyful moment when a design falls into place with just the right layout and just the right color palette for a client. We all have heard 'do what you love'. E U R E K A - I have found it!
You will find it easy to work with me. I communicate well, am prompt and understand the importance of collaboration during the design process.
What else would you like us to know about you?
I like hiking in Desolation Wilderness above Echo Lake; lap swimming at an outdoor pool in San Rafael; gardening & cooking, and spending time with family and friends. Last month I designed a game for kids and adults - that was fun!
Oh, and did I tell you that I like designing patterns?
