After almost 15 years as the art director of Style at Home, Canada’s decorating magazine, I have recently started my own business to expand my personal design portfolio and to take on new and exciting projects in both residential and commercial design. My experience in producing stylish interiors for the pages of this national magazine will help me to work comfortably with you, offering guidance to achieve your decorating vision. Whether your project involves just one room, or a whole house, or whether you need help organizing your space or arranging your furniture, we’ll work together to realize the home of your dreams within your budget. My exposure to great decor, the latest trends, and design professionals has given me a unique perspective into the world of decorating and afforded me the opportunity to develop professional relationships with talented and creative individuals within the design industry.
My long history of award-winning art direction has also given me invaluable experience to help you stage and style your home for sale.
In addition to this, I have worked on many do-it-yourself project features for several publications. Currently I am producing a regular column for Parents Canada magazine to create and photograph inspiring and easy crafts you can do with children. I have also launched two of my own shops on Etsy, an international e-commerce site, focussing on handmade and vintage items. Please check out Susan’s House of Cards and
Thanks Dad when you have a chance. As a magazine art director and more recently in my new freelance status, I have been lucky enough to work with many talented photographers as a prop stylist. I really enjoy the challenge of finding just the right prop(s) for every shot and I am looking forward to doing more of this sourcing in the future. I also love working with my hands, and I hope that the images included on this site showcase my attention to detail, my photo-styling abilities and quality craftsmanship and provide some inspiration to get creative yourself!
Whatever your project please give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
