“a creative interior decorator”

Her gifted talents of imagination, resourcefulness and an ‘artist’s eye’ in conjunction with respect for the client’s taste and budget allows the creation of, not simply functional spaces, but also ones that are intricately and passionately designed to reflect the client’s personality and lifestyle.

Her creativity extends to creating artwork and, although painting on canvas and drawing with oils is one of her talents, she has become well known for her unique reverse glass paintings which are currently for sale at Hannah Grimes Marketplace in downtown Keene, NH
