Artuitive Design


I Love Design!

I’m a longtime multi-media artist, with two art-related degrees, as well as an interior design and architecture enthusiast. Although I have only been doing outdoor design for around 3 years, I’m not short of experience. I started designing pools and outdoor living spaces at the beginning of COVID when the pool industry exploded with new business. I was producing 1 to 3 complex pool designs a week for over a year. I fell in love with the process of designing pools and presenting clients with beautiful outdoor options. I have been blessed to work with a few great pool and outdoor living companies, as well as many individual homeowners. I am currently focusing on freelance designs I do directly for clients and businesses.


PS – I’d like to invite you to check out my artist site at where you can see some of the amazing alcohol ink artwork I’ve produced lately!

Love From My Clients

Tina L.

Hi Debbie, just wanted to say thank you for your kind, patient, expert design help on my pool and backyard redesign. I was in desperate need of somebody to talk the whole project out with, and your expertise was worth every penny. I feel so lucky to have stumbled across you as I was about to lose my mind with 100 decisions bouncing around my head. You guided me in making all these decisions in a calm and down to earth way, all with thoughtful consideration of how I want to use the space, what makes the most sense, and thinking about potential problems and solutions. Not to mention that seeing my project come to life in 3D was completely game changing! Thank you!!
