A Wyoming native, Yancy brings a sensibility rooted in the American West. Her interiors are modernized with unexpected elements, fresh color palettes and silhouettes, and the wit and whimsy of carefully-chosen art and accents.
Yancy has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming and a Master of Arts degree in interior architecture and design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Prior to launching her design career, Yancy worked as the design and home show coordinator for Western Interiors + Design magazine and as the managing editor of a local community newspaper. Yancy is also the current Chairman of By Western Hands, an organization dedicated to helping sustain the creation of decorative and functional art using designs and techniques influenced by the American West.
When not immersed in the art of creating beautiful spaces, Yancy enjoys traveling, cooking and spending time recreating in the wilds of Wyoming with her young daughter and her husband.
