Starting his career in design was a happy accident. Clifton started with a Fine Arts degree from the University of British Columbia.  Following this, with an accumulation of life and career experiences, travel, and working alongside unique and talented individuals he built his design education.


Beginning as a visual merchandizer and buyer, it was a natural progression to move into interior design. Having worked in multiple projects in Vancouver, Whistler, Connecticut and New York these experiences have only further shaped his design thinking.


As a lover of all things beautiful, Clifton has an appreciation for artist, designers and craftsmen's creative processes, and with complete admiration of their creations, has developed his own sense of graceful style.
