Ben “backed into” the interior design profession with a BFA from the University of Kansas in commercial art and illustration. Ben originally started at Lippmann’s illustrating and composing the store’s print advertising.
With the encouragement of M. Walter Lippmann, Ben decided to give interior design “a try” to supplement his freelance illustration business. It was a good fit, and 30-plus years later, Ben still loves his work. “Every client and project is unique.”
Although he stays current on design, color, and furniture trends, Ben believes an interior should reflect each client’s own style, taste and interests rather than mirroring the current fashion. His portfolio includes local and regional residential, healthcare and hospitality design projects.
