Former students have come from around the world with varied backgrounds. Some from related industries, many with no design experience, but all with a desire to learn and a passion for design. Our graduates have found continued success in a number of interior design disciplines, including various sectors in design and architectural companies, property development, and in some cases their own practices.
ANNEMARIE VAN RIET
Born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver, Catherine has been
exposed to drawing and painting since early childhood. After
seriously considering a university degree in interior design, her path was diverted to banking. Her creative sensibilities are complemented by over a decade of experience in the financial
services sector, where she held management positions in North America, Asia Pacific and the UK. Her approach to design is thoughtful, inspired and balanced and she takes inspiration from an insatiable enthusiasm for travel, literature, culture and art. After graduating Catherine worked for Foster + partners. www.fosterandpartners.com
