Ever since I can remember, I have been passionate about art, architecture and design.

My residential and small commercial work brings my clients into the 21st Century. Regardless of the style and decade of your project, I can personalize it to your specifications. My goal in every project is to provide my clients with pragmatic solutions with style and resale value. I can focus on the small millwork details of the cabinetry as much as the overall conceptual design.

After graduating with a professional degree in Architecture, my love for the urban life eventually drew me to Chicago, the city of architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies Van der Rohe, and Louis Sullivan. In this rich environment, I got my license and established Petrick Architecture in 2000 as an independent practice. I find it extremely rewarding to craft a vision in harmony with my clients’ requirements and desires. As a mom and a property owner, I can truly empathize and understand many of my clients’ needs.

In the course of my career, I have learned so much from all the people and different projects.  I think that the most rewarding element is seeing my projects start from an awkward house to a quality, refined home that my clients will enjoy living in for years to come. It will never cease to amaze me.
