Sheila Jorgensen grew up in Colorado. She's lived in Evergreen, Denver, Steamboat Springs and Conifer. She has been working with and studying about Interior Design and Construction her entire adult life.
Her first construction job, working as a painter in Larimer Square at age 17. Because of her studies and growing knowledge of floor plans and building techniques she quickly rose in the painting company business to become a foreman of large crews. This is where she began learning the importance of working with professionally skilled tradespeople, the craftsmanship, the scheduling, the timing, and how to work together as a team with all trades in a project.
Continuing painting work throughout college. First as a student of Architecture and Passive Solar Design, then Project Management and finishing with a degree in Interior Design from Colorado Institute of Art.
Fun fact: when Sheila opened her own painting business with Mogens Jorgensen, they did some "painter modeling" for a national advertising campaign of professional paint machinery. They were featured on the boxes and brochures of GRACO for many years.
Sheila met Mogens, a second generation Painter, and Social Worker from Denmark, they opened their painting business together in 1983 and eventually married. The business specializes in fine interior finishes, cabinetry, faux finishes and wallpaper.
They spend three to for weeks in Denmark yearly, visiting family and friends and catching up on the newest European design trends.
