I am very grateful to have the opportunity to share my love of creating my designs for you. With an education in Interior Design, 2010 from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Business Management and Marketing, 1988, Professional Business School, I have always wanted to create a business that would be unlike any other business in how the freedom to create would be limitless. Working in design for two of the best metropolitan cities and furniture design showrooms of Chicago and Dallas, gave me great insight and exposure into the culture, fashion and design. I valued the opportunities and learning experiences, which has afforded me the opportunity to love, study, and work in a career that’s exciting and meaningful. I enjoy the opportunity to be a part of creating designs that will be memorable in the hearts, who seek my service for years to come. Sincerely, Velva
