The daughter of an architect and builder, Kathryn O’Donovan was inspired by beautiful design from an early age. While visiting the construction sites of her father’s projects, Kathryn developed a true appreciation for the artistic effort and talent required to create beautiful space and structure. She also learned to recognize the importance that detail brings to good design.
Aspiring to combine the basics she had learned with the creative energy she possessed, Kathryn pursued her own dream of becoming a designer, and today is a valued member of Normandy Remodeling’s talented design team. Raised in Ireland, Kathryn moved to Chicago in 1995 and studied for a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts at the International Academy. She quickly found her niche in the kitchen and bath industry, creating stunning designs and quality work that have earned her the reputation of a highly regarded industry professional. Her success has made it possible for her to work with two celebrity designers, and she also assisted in design projects across the globe from Hawaii to Austria.
