"From her meticulous attention to form and functionality, to stunning aesthetic design details, Kendra Shippy is a rare gem in the field! She is professional, personable, and truly a pleasure to work with."
Hello! Thanks for taking interest in my website. I am an interior designer and aspiring architect. Design began at a very young age for me and grew with the relationship between my aunt and I. She, being the first female Visual Merchandise Vice President at the Bon Marche, opened my eyes to the world of design and to the people that have inspired her. She is the person that has helped me establish the first building blocks for the path I now find myself on. I am truly thankful that she had taken an interest in me.
Education started a little bit later than the typical college student. At 24 I began at Portland Community College double majoring in Interior Design and Architectural Design as well as two certificates- one in Kitchen and Bath Design and the second in Furniture.
After I had completed a degree in Interior Design and the two certificates I transferred to Portland State University and was awarded a B.S. in Architecture.
During my schooling I had several internship and work opportunities. First was for a local Architect, a few small design jobs here and there, an Interior Design Firm, a Boutique Architecture Firm and finally DMS Architects where I am currently. Projects vary between small residential interior projects to medium sized commercial projects both new and remodeled.
