Growing up in Helsinki, Finland I loved to use my creativity and resolve problems. By the age of 12, it was clear to me that interior design was going to be my profession. In the early seventies, I traveled to California and was introduced to a well known designer in Los Angeles. He encouraged me to enroll in the interior design program at Woodbury University, which I did.
Upon graduation I started my own business, KMA Interiors. My work included commercial and residential design. Clients included various home builders, law firms and techology companies.
After relocating to the Midwest in the early nineties, I began working with Hon Industries and many of their employees. One of the highlights was receiving the Installation of the Year award from Shaw Industries for the Geneva Golf and Country Club.
For the last ten years, I have been working mostly residential jobs in Chicago. The majority of my clients are working on various stages of their homes. My main goal is to help them come up with a solution that will alllow them to enjoy the results for many years to come.
