    In my youth, I was fascinated with interior decoration.  I could not resist rearranging furniture in my childhood home.  The impulse to make living spaces more comfortable continues to this day.  I feel a room can have an entirely different character simply by adding an accent pillow or rearranging furniture.  After earning a diploma in graphic design from Durham College of Applied Arts and Technology, I pursued a career in magazine design and I have had the privilege to work under the tutelage of many creative minds.  Receipt of numerous industry awards over the past 20 years is evidence of my keen sense of style.  The sense of style; colour, perspective, and visual appeal are, for the most part, intuitive.  I have this intuition; be it in designing the contents of a publication or decorating a home.
