With a passion for infusing art in architecture,  I take a different approach to bringing architectural projects to life. I use distinctive freehand drawing in the design process and weave art and community into spaces where people live and thrive.


It all starts with an idea, full of potential, and ready to be transformed. 


Let’s discover what we can create together.

The Drawing Room

A Unique Art and Design Shop

The joy and creativity infused in our architectural projects eventually spilled over into an art and design shop for you.

The Drawing Room is a place for you to find inspiration for your creative design projects, plus the materials you need to make them a reality. Looking for the perfect light? A statement work of art? That precise color of Farrow & Ball paint? A gift for an artful friend? That, and so much more, is what you’ll find inside The Drawing Room.

The Drawing Room is located at 36 North Water Street in historic downtown New Bedford.
