PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER
Co-owner of Creative Matters, Carol is passionate about textile design and enjoys the thrill of working with her team of talented designers, fair trade weavers in Southeast Asia and hand-picked manufacturing partners internationally to take the firm’s designs from concepts and artwork to finished product.
Over the last 25 years, she has worked with countless design luminaries to develop innovative and ethically produced floor and wallcoverings. She is highly respected for helping interior designers and architects push beyond their own boundaries and for working closely with manufacturers to provide novel solutions.
Carol has been at the forefront of our firm's commitment to socially responsible business and fair trade practices, selecting only mills that meet the highest ethical and environmental standards. As a testament to this, in 2017 she was named an honorary ambassador by NGO Label Step, for her tireless commitment to promoting fair trade practices in the carpet industry.
Born in Virginia, U.S. and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Carol graduated from textile design at the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning following studies in drawing and painting at OCAD University.
