Born and raised in California, I have lived in France, Italy, New York, San Francisco,and Manhattan Beach, Ca. . I Have designed women's shoes, clothing, and accessories. I have spent the Last 25 years, owning Decorative Tile & Bath,Inc. A Kitchen and Bath showroom, with ceramic tile, stone, plumbing fixtures, and home accessories. I have designed all my life! My Mentors were: Diana Vreeland, Joan Helpern, Billy Baldwin ( the designer, not the actor) Yves Saint Laurent, Andy Warhol, Stanley Marcus, and a host of other talents, not as famous, but equally as talented. My travels to every continent, except Australia have led me to a sophisticated concept of style, and the way different elements can be applied to every design style. I have designed department Stores, Boutiques, Large new construction residential, offices, and small remodels. I have also Taught at FIDM Los Angeles Campus.
