Ani's work issues from a deep creative core. Her MFA in painting served as the foundation for a career beginning with Gensler and Associates, where she attended to an array of technically demanding projects. Next she partnered with mentor Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and honed her deep appreciation for spatial relationships and refined materials. As Senior Design Director for Steven Volpe Designs, Ani took the creative lead on a dizzying array of world-renowned projects for clients in international hubs like London, Paris, New York City, to the creative titans of art and advertising in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Published features include an Atherton Estate in Architectural Digest and a London Townhouse in Elle Decor.
