Felicia brings to OKW’s Interiors department a layered approach to design. With a background in Graphic Design, she views her work through the lens of creating an identity, from the big picture, down to the smallest details. Her talents for graphics led her to work on several OKW branding initiatives while pursuing a degree in architecture. Since then, she has developed an impressive portfolio of hospitality and commercial interiors.
Outside OKW, she can be found either at Dawali, a Mediterranean restaurant in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood that she co-manages, on a lakeside stroll, or enjoying a summer day by kayak.
What made you want to become an interior designer: I have a background in Graphic Design and Architecture, so Interiors seemed to be the obvious choice. It’s a merging of creativity, math, color theory, and volumetric space on a faster timeline!
If you weren’t a designer, what would you be? Something to do with Dietetics and Nutrition. Title TBD.
