I wasn’t exactly born a design enthusiast – it’s a love I’ve cultivated over 20 years.
Thanks to my parents, I grew up surrounded by a rainbow of coloured cans and fan decks, when they launched their own milk paint company, Homestead House Paint Co., when I was 3-years old. You could say that I developed an interest in the world of decor through osmosis. When I took over the family business in 2009 and began taking on renovation projects, I became fully immersed in the beauty of design and loved the creative freedom that came with collaboration — and before I knew it my colleagues and clients were coming to me for colour and design advice and more.
I’ve had the great fortune of working with many incredible and talented people in the industry over the last 10 years. These experiences and my entrepreneurial nature led me to create FusionMineral Paint in 2014 — FusionMineral Paint is a collection of specialty, eco-friendly paints. My philosophy here is that anyone can paint it beautiful, so I developed a product that made upcycling as easy as could be. Open the container of Fusion, and paint! No top coat required, seriously! Zero VOC, over 50 colors in the range, including metallics and a whole host of other decorative finishes.Throughout my career, I have grown more passionate about giving back to the design community by mentoring the next generation of industry leaders.
At the end of the day, it is incredible to come home to a place that feels comfortable and oh-so-‘you.’ It’s my wish to inspire you to pick up a brush and Paint it Beautiful.
With good cheer,
