Thank you for taking an interest in my novels, and my design portfolio & services.

I am currently available to hire for Residential and small Commercial Interior Design Projects in Calgary AB & surrounding areas. For rates & more information, please check out my Interior Design page or contact me by email at:


After achieving my Master Design Certificate from SAIT in 2004, I entered into Visual Design Program at the University of Calgary offering courses that span MANY aspects of design, including interior design and decorating, photography, and graphic design. Because learning is so important to me, I keep up with trends by continuously improving my design skills.

My second (but equal) passion is writing, and I have taken numerous college and university English courses such as creative writing, intensive grammar, copy-writing, and more. I have one self published novel (currently selling on Amazon) and another on its way.

Design Experience:

Since 2013, I  have worked as the lead designer for Vayda Homes & Design Inc, a Real Estate Investment & Home Renovation company that specializes in flipping houses and complete home renovations. I worked alongside builders and site managers (such as Canterra Custom Homes) helping to manage the interior/exterior design aspects of the builds. This included: sourcing materials, making selections, completing drawings and summaries, acquiring quotes, completing progress reports, and staging the properties for re-sale. My duties for Vayda Homes also included the position of real estate assistant spanning all aspects of social media, advertising & marketing, web design (HTML and WordPress sites), graphic/print design, copy-writing,  and enhanced HDR real estate photography.

On the side, I also run a small free-lance design company, Mary-Eva Decor, that I started in 2012. Projects include: full reno design, decorating consultations, sourcing materials, shopping for furniture, and completing design sample boards for clients.

My experience has given me an understanding of the needs of a broad range of clients. Whatever the project, I am committed to ensuring clients are happy with the end result. I view the design process as a partnership and encourage each client to participate so I can create a space that is right for their personal style.

Freelance Services:

I am currently available for Real Estate Photography (including Image Retouch) & Interior Design Projects (from new builds to home consultations). For more information on both, please check out my webpages or email me at:
