Mary Noland Jensen
Mary believes that good design reaches beyond aesthetics and artistic vision. Truly successful design enhances what happens in a space, and is ultimately about people and their activities. Have you ever walked into a space and it felt right? You may not know why but it feels comfortable. THAT is good design. You know it when you see it! Mary's attention to detail, her strength in drawing, and CAD skills are a tremendous asset to the design process. The ability to create 3 dimensional renderings and detail drawings is necessary to express and communicate the design to you - the customer. Mary’s world travels, creativity, enthusiasm and feel for design result in effective and beautiful designs.
