Since 1999, she has been creating beautiful and nourishing environments throughout New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and beyond.
Anjie has always found great joy in designing, drawing, and sharing that beauty with others. In her search to expand her love of art beyond a piece of paper, she studied architecture in college. She realized then that architecture was more than engineering buildings, but an opportunity to create harmonious and nurturing spaces for people to inhabit. She was fascinated by the way that spaces and forms could shape the lives of people within them. She fondly recalls that she was the only student in her architectural photography class that captured images of people while everyone focused solely on the building structures. It was then she began to see how her design work fully came to life when touched by human interaction and thus decided to focus her talents on interior spaces. Her desire to understand this symbiotic relationship between the spaces and its inhabitants led her to investigate and integrate holistic principles of feng shui, environmental psychology and sustainable green design in her work.
A graduate in Architecture from the College of Environmental Design at the University of California at Berkeley, Anjie is a sought-after expert in the fields of feng shui and green design.
