More about Candace
What keeps you passionate about Lamin-Art and the industry itself?
Commercial Design excites me. All buildings have unique features and each one has a design that has been well thought out and executed. I am thrilled to be a part of that process. Design with time is always changing. I like evolving with those changes. Lamin-Art is always evolving and adding new products. This makes the job exciting, motivating and interesting.
Favorite Lamin-Art product?
I like all of our collections. Right now I am excited to present the new Solid Color collection, especially in the new high-gloss, diamond finish. Whenever I pull the solid color samples out everyone gets very excited. This “pop” of color has really made the design community sit-up and take notice. The vellum finish is also great and has a wonderful texture to it. It is different, and I like that.
What’s your favorite pastime?
I love to spend time outside. I bike, golf, play tennis, and ski in the winter. I also enjoy walking and hiking. One memory I have is of a hike I took with my husband and children on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We came across a mother bear and her two cubs. It was almost too close for comfort, but close enough to enjoy the encounter and hike side-by-side with them!
