Commercial Interior Design was my life for many years. Corporate design became my expertise and later Healthcare and Educational design through my relationship as a subconsultant with several Architectural firms.  I formed ARIG DESIGN GROUP LTD, as a Woman Owned Business that provided professional, commercial interior design services for twenty years. All good things must come to an end, I closed the ARIG design studio December 31st 2019... yes right before the start of the pandemic. Maybe it was very good timing!

In 2020 I transitioned from spatial design to visual design, something that I love and brings a sense of calm to me. Many of my interiors projects involved graphic design and illustration for wayfinding and wall art. I have always pursued artistic projects in my spare time with dozens of sketchbooks illustrating my thoughts and ideas. I have also written and illustrated several books that I have self-published. I work digitally mostly utilizing Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Procreate. I do not limit myself to digital creations. Most days you will find a collage project on my worktable that changes on a whim as I walk by, waiting for me to make it permanent work of art.

Leaving what I have known and excelled in for many years has taken me down a new and exciting path.

My design studio is located in Buffalo New York in the historic Pierce Arrow Factory Complex.
