Growing up with the diverse architecture of Savannah, Georgia, I was inspired to study art and design. My career began in the yacht building and residential home industries. After completing my degree in interior design, I practiced with architects specializing in the commercial, healthcare and hospitality field. In 1988, I opened a fine art gallery on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, met my husband and together we have provided interior and architectural design, as well as, fine art & framing to private and corporate clients (see Testimonials).
We empower our client's to enhance their space with Southern Grace, character, comfort and personal expression.
