Commercial Design & Professional Development Instructor
Candice knew what she wanted to be when she was only thirteen years old. It was the gentle nudges of art teachers who helped her develop her natural skills in drawing, painting, photography, drafting, and sculpture, and encourage her road to design.
She won several art awards in junior high and high school including the National New York Golden Key Award. She then earned her Associates of Arts in Interior Design and immediately went into teaching college-level art and opened her own design business. That later grew into being featured in a prestigious art gallery in New Mexico and owning and operating a construction company, an art school, and a successful design firm.
As her passion grew for teaching she went back to school to earn her Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design. Then continuing on to earn a Master of Arts in Interior Architecture from Washington State University with an emphasis on biomimicry and parametric design, graduating Magna-Cume-Laude.
Candice has been working in the Interior Design industry for over 20 years and takes pride in her ability to transform spaces by bringing new ideas and inspirations to life. She has won several awards throughout her design career.
Currently an adjunct professor at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design and an instructor at Heritage School of Interior Design, she is passionate about sharing her talents and knowledge of all aspects of design with both her students and her clients. A long-time on-and-off Colorado native, Candice enjoys being with her four children, listening to good music, traveling, and soaking up the sun.
