All of us at team Lisa Escobar Design are so thrilled to be part of the Las Vegas Showcase House project!
To us, it’s not only about design but also about mentorship and community, which are a big part of what drives us.
What a delight to hear the extraordinary mentor Roger Thomas of Wynn Design & Development and his mentee, Alex, share their work and inspiration with the scholars from the Core Academy during the Las Vegas Showcase House event at World Market Center.
Roger told the young people that anything is possible and confided that he had dyslexia as a child and that he always drew every day. “A mentor to me means you are someone who is teaching, but more than teaching you are showing,” he said.
He said he has always approached interior design based on art history. In his work, he said, “Nothing is like anything you have every seen before. Everything is original and unique. We do things that are funny. It’s not what’s expected. It’s what’s surprising. We want to create a wonderful memory.”
