Karina has always been inspired by colors and textures found in nature. As an undergraduate, she studied Landscape Architecture and found she was drawn to the physical structures on landscape projects. That led to an exploration of how exterior and interior environments come together, and she began taking cues from nature in every element of design.
Previously, Karina worked at several design firms including DiSunno Architecture in the Hamptons, where she focused on high-end residential projects. When she’s away from work, she continues her training in hip hop, plays video games, and cuddles with her two cats River and Birch.
