About Lisa Sandham

Lisa Sandham Interior DesignFrom a very early age Lisa Sandham had a love for art, writing and the creative process but it wasn't until she entered into a three year accredited Interior Design program at Confederation College that she realized her passion lay in design. She graduated top of her class and was honored with the President’s Medal in 1991 and has spent over 19 years working within the architectural field in Thunder Bay collaborating with local architects, drafting firms, manufacturers, contractors and craftsmen. Working within varied design disciplines has given her the advantage of understanding not only the aesthetic requirements of design but also the technical and construction concepts behind her designs.

In 2004 Lisa Sandham established her own practice, Lisa Sandham Interior Design and demonstrated her commitment to her profession by passing the National Council for Interior Design Qualification exam (NCIDQ) and becoming a qualified Ontario Building Code Designer within the province of Ontario.

She is a member of ARIDO (Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario) and IDC (Interior Designers of Canada). She has worked actively within her association by having served as President of the Northern Ontario Chapter from 2008-2009 and is currently sitting as of one three new Directors to the ARIDO Board Board of Management for a three year term.

In recent years Lisa has written several articles which have been published in Interiors and Sources Magazine, an international design trade magazine, and she is a regular contributor to Bayview Magazine, writing on design and lifestyle. She has been interviewed by various national publications including Ontario Home Builder's Magazine and Fine Homes Magazine.
