Profile and About Jennifer LaPierre 'Gigi'

Designer - Artist

I strive to approach each project utilizing all of my resources; my expertise in color and decorative painting, respect for composition and the lyrical nature of each space and the ability to layer a collection to gently reveal a vignette of individualism.

I have been in the design industry since 1989, originally in decorative arts but have transitioned into interior design. I have participated in 16 Decorator Showcases and am familiar with the industry and comfortable with the demands of project management.

I absolutely love what I do and have been eager to trade my scaffold in for a more grounded platform.

I am very detail oriented and can multitask while maintaining a sense of pragmatic humor and grace. I am positive in in practice and mind, a problem solver and have a ravenous work ethic. I play well with others, enjoy collaborations and take great pride in cultivating long relationships with clients, artisans and contractors.

Working with the same team of professional artisans close to twenty years, the studio strives to offer unique design solutions and techniques for each project. We create cracked and custom wall covering, cracked linen table tops, painted maps, murals, faux and decorative finishes, ornamental screens, painted tapestries, gilded panels and the equestrian canvas.

The line in its entirety combines artistic interpretations of classic art with graphic and material elements of today.
