While working in Marketing at a major Hollywood studio, Shawn began designing residential interiors for personal friends in her free time. After a number of clients expressed disbelief that she wasn't working full-time as a designer, she figured she was on to something and sought formal training. While procuring a degree in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, she promptly secured internships working for world-renowned Interior Designer Kelly Wearstler, as well the high-end fabric house Scalamandre, famously known for supplying exquisite fabrications for the White House.
Building on her natural design ability, Shawn has branched out into events, while continuing to design custom residential interiors under her own moniker. Additionally, her background in Entertainment has provided a natural entree into the world of set design, where her keen eye for details, knowledge of current design trends, plus strong work ethic and amendable personality have made her an indispensable asset on every project.
