Annie's Story:

I was born an artist. I love to design, draw, build, sculpt and paint. I have a Bachelors of Fine Art from The University of Colorado, where I studied ceramics and painting. While in school, I discovered that I am drawn to making objects for a specific person, purpose or space. I found that I need to be connected in some way, to the person receiving my art.

For the past twenty years, I have been an interior painter and muralist, decorator and home stylist. I have realized a passion for helping my clients express their uniqueness and creativity through the art and design of their home and business spaces. I feel blessed to have partnered with Cristi...her belief in the power of collaboration and her wildly creative spirit birthed Substance Creative. I am grateful for our partnership.


Cristi's Story:

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for decorating and design.  Even as a young child I can remember taking items I found around the house and transforming spaces into something beautiful.  For many years I pursued my other passion, pediatric nursing, and only used my design skills in my own home and in the homes of my friends and family.  It now brings me such joy to work with Annie to help others find and express their unique sense of design.
