I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon State College and majored in Photography and Design. Shortly after that I began working as a Visual Merchandise Manager for the Bon Marche / Macy's. Creating and managing all visual presentations throughout the store. I was then promoted to Regional Visual Director for the Oregon and Southern Washington region. In 2002 I was awarded Visual Manager of the Year. After 24 years experience in the visual merchandising display field I found a passion for staging the home departments. I started my own business INTERIOR MOTIFS in 2006, Home Staging, Color Consulting and Interior Restyling with much enthusiasm, passion and success!
