Hi, I’m Irene. I fell in love with Mary’s style after attending one of her sketch classes. I guess you could say it was love at first sketch ;) After a few conversations it was clear that we both loved art, design, and creativity.
Mary brought me in to help with styling and coordinating creative projects. Days around the office include creative brainstorming sessions, styling her amazing sketches, random bursts of laughter, figuring out stop motion animation, or what the next BIG thing will be.
Outside of work, I love to spend time outdoors with my two girls and husband exploring the beautiful landscapes of California in our minivan. I'm an undercover boba addict who has no shame in taking my kids at the wee hours to get a fix.

Kristan has been a social butterfly since childhood and was always throwing parties, whether real or imagined. It was only natural that Kristan would grow up to be an event coordinator. Kristan received her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality with a focus in the event management from San Jose State University, and has been working in the event industry since 2008. She got her start as a wedding day assistant and eventually as a wedding and event coordinator. Additionally, she serves on the board of directors for the National Association of Catering & Events as the community service chair.
It was through her profession that Kristan and her husband fell in love with and relocated to Livermore. They love the quaint downtown, wine country and ample outdoor activities. In her spare time she loves to spend the weekends with her husband, Paul, and their dog, Truffles, on adventures in and around the beautiful Bay Area, whether that is hiking, going to the beach, camping, wine tasting, or barbecuing with close friends and family.

Born with a crayon in her hand and a love of anything needing embellishment (walls included!), Annie's parents couldn't stop her from pursuing her artistic direction. Instead, they encouraged her with numerous art classes and lots of blank paper.
Annie studied fine art at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She went on to pursue her Masters Degree in Electronic Visualization and Virtual Reality but quickly realized that technology was not her passion. Instead she spent many years teaching hands on art to children of the Chicago public schools. She found her love of teaching and art to be perfectly aligned.

Hi, I’m Mark - Very Mary Inspired in-house renderist. If you’re looking for a rendering that will impress your high end clients, I’m you’re guy. We work with luxury designers from interiors to weddings, corporate projects, to retail. You’d be surprised with some of the amazing projects that come through our door.
