SHELLEY PAULUS

BACHELOR INTERIOR DESIGN
SUMMER STUDENT

Shelley joined the Synthesis Design team as an intern in the summer of 2021.
She brought with her technical skills, that include advanced 3d rendering capabilities, which have already yielded impressive results.
Along with an eagerness to learn, Shelley is inspired by the joy created by a well-designed space and enjoys learning new ways to represent design graphically.
Growing up on the Sunshine Coast, Shelley loves being by the ocean and can always come up with an excuse to walk down to the beach (except while at the Synthesis Design studio).
Shelley is going into her final year of the CIDA Accredited Bachelor of Interior Design Program at Vancouver Island University in the Fall. During her time in school, Shelley has achieved a number of impressive academic accomplishments such as being a 2021 IDEC Student Design Competition regional finalist as well as being awarded Emerging Professional of the Year in her class by demonstrating outstanding achievement, continued dedication, and professionalism.
Next year, Shelley is looking forward to taking on the role of Vice President of the VIU Interior Design Student Association.
Shelley is excited to take what she has learnt in school and implement it in her work at Synthesis Design.
