Denise de Marco graduated from Parson's School of Design with a degree in Fine Arts studying in New York and Paris. She has been a fashion designer for Bob Mackie, Calvin Klein, J Lo, Josephine Chaus and Vince Camuto. Her work has taken her all over the world including Asia and Europe. She has integrated her design and travel experiences into her painting and illustrations continuing to paint murals, furniture and develop new wall and floor finishes. She is now focusing on incorporating her fashion knowledge of color and style into creating wonderful original homes. She describes herself as not just a painter, but a design contractor who can guide clients through the daunting task of choosing material, colors, cabinetry, furnishings, flooring and finishes during the planning and execution of a new project or renovation. Too often these critical choices are made late in a project with less than optimal results.
