Growing up, I enjoyed exploring my artistic side and always hoped that my passion would lead me to a career in design. My journey started with learning at OCAD University, followed by Graduate Studies in Design Management. It was a stepping stone to becoming the design professional I aspired to be.

In 2017, I took a leap of faith and founded Artwell Design Studio, a Toronto-based design firm focusing on commercial and residential interiors. Throughout the years, Artwell has had the privilege of collaborating with numerous clients on diverse projects across North America and beyond.


I approach my work with sincerity and kindness, continuously positioning the client at the center of the creative process, and recognizing that design is ultimately meant for people. I am grateful for the clients and friends who support my dreams and aspirations. Their collective belief plays a significant role in shaping who I am today and in my pursuit of becoming an even better designer.

I always hope that the firm I started can genuinely make a difference for clients and the people surrounding us. As the leader of the team, I’m honoured to work here with individuals who are passionate and have their own visions.

Making things meaningful with a grateful heart and a desire to learn is what I always do throughout my journey in the design field.
