B.A. University of Toronto, B.I.D. (Hons) Ryerson University
Mariya plays an integral part in overseeing the interior design department at Audax. She holds a Bachelor of Art History from the University of Toronto, along with an Honours degree from Canada’s renowned Ryerson School of Interior Design.
While helping spearhead the successful expansion of interior design into Audax’s practice, Mariya has worked on multiple high-end residential projects and has collaborated to create custom furniture pieces. Having worked in the interior industry for over a decade, Mariya has also had her projects featured in Canadian and international publications.
Mariya brings skill, a talented intuitive element, and a strong technical background into her practice. Her years of study and training in art and art history have helped her immensely. She often draws upon her familiarity with the classic paintings of the great masters of the Western canon as a source of inspiration--for example, the strong colour palette of Dutch classics, or the delicate curvature of Rococo.
Not one to get caught up in the latest fads, Mariya’s design ethos is also influenced by classical architecture--in particular, its approach to scale, balance and symmetry.
