Creating functional affordable and aesthetically pleasing interiors using the most environmentally sensitive techniques with locally-sourced products & materials

Ellen has been working as an Interior Designer in Portland for 15 years. She has valuable knowledge in many areas of interior design – both commercial and residential. From initial design meeting to final occupancy, Ellen can guide the client through the design process as well as the sometimes complicated permitting process in most metro-area jurisdictions.


Ellen’s qualifications and accreditations include a BA in Interior Design, NCIDQ certificate #020947, participation in both IIDA & ASID and maintaining a board position with IDC-Oregon. In addition to working as an independent designer, Ellen also teaches at the Art Institute of Portland and Portland Community College.
