Gwen is an interior designer who can’t imagine a more fulfilling career. In the field for over twenty years, she loves to help people understand and experience space in new and elevated ways.
Like so many of Heritage’s students, Gwen’s journey to being a designer wasn’t linear — she first attended school for science and worked in technology before pivoting to follow a creative path. She then studied interior design at Bellevue College, feng shui at Blue Mountain Institute, and began her career as an architectural lighting designer before starting her own interiors business in 2005.
Since then Gwen has worked with nearly a thousand clients up and down the West Coast, creating meaningful spaces that truly bring ease and joy to her clients' lives. Through her business Atmospheric Design, she still finds her chosen profession to be richly rewarding.
As a Heritage instructor, Gwen aims to empower new design students with the insights, skills, confidence and inspiration to follow their own unique and wonderful creative journeys.
