Acadia is a native of Ypsilanti, MI. She is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University holding accredited degrees in both Fine Art and Interior Design with minors in Graphic Design and Psychology, graduating summa cum laude with honors. Acadia gained experience in many facets of design through a series of internships and design positions spanning several years before establishing Surroundings Fine Art & Design Inc. Through the years she has developed her own eclectic style, driven by the beauty of the objects that surround her, and utilizing reclaimed materials that many would cast off as waste.
