Born and raised in Los Angeles sparked my love for all forms of art, architecture and the beauty of urban decay .
Ever since I can remember I loved the fine arts, architecture and interior design. I don't think I could ever just focus on one discipline in the fine arts because I love all forms of it.
I graduated from The University of Southern California with a BFA in 1995.
I designed interiors for model homes for new housing developments for Shea, Pardee Homes and many other
established developers for housing communities all over California, Arizona and Las Vegas. I moved to NYC to work as a home stylist on 5th Ave. and studied graphic design at NYU at night .
I quickly landed another dream job in Hollywood to design websites for a cutting edge web design house, for fortune 500 companies like Reebok to GM. Later, I moved to the Hermosa Beach and at that time I was the only female web designer for Mattel's Interactive web "boys" group who designed for Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Harry Potter, Aqua Man, Max Steel, and many more popular Mattel's games & toys.
That combination of my fine arts and graphics design made my transition to urban & landscape design seamless. I designed for cities parks & recs., parkways, govt. projects for USPS's , shopping centers, restaurants, colleges, urban street signage & mosaics, residentials, multi-unit housing, landscapes for skateparks, exterior and interiors of an eclectic variety of my character and historical homes.
