Florida raised, Gretchen's foray into the arts began with an apprenticeship with a paper hanger during high school. This exposure to design/interior decor sparked an interest in creating the elaborate designs by hand. After graduating high school, Gretchen began an apprenticeship with Mary. A quick learner and passionate about the industry, Gretchen skillfully mastered a wide variety of difficult techniques. In 2003 a business partnership was formed. Always looking for fresh ideas and staying ontop of trends is a passion that continues to inspire clients and colleagues alike. "Find something you love to do and you'll never have to work a day in your life" Gretchen feels blessed to be doing what she loves.
