A creative kid all my life, I'm from the 'burbs of Chicago. After graduating from Ithaca College, I embarked on an 19+ year career in professional theater in Chicago. 


Along the way, I earned an MFA in Interior Architecture from Columbia College Chicago, designed a few things, and drafted for commercial and residential architects.

In 2013 I fell into the TV/Film world as a set designer first for Chicago Fire, next for the film Jupiter Ascending, the USA show Sirens, then picked up gigs here and there like Patriot for Amazon and Showtime's The Chipilot. Most recently I completed season one of The Exorcist for Fox Studios and the upcoming movie Widows.

Currently I am working for an architect, teaching others DIY skills with Hometalk DIY Helpers,  and undoing and redoing our Humboldt Park home.

"I wanted to make some cool live edge shelves for my kitchen.  I listened to a friend's advice and they turned out looking so bad.  I consulted Becky Marshall Fezatte for a remedy.  Not only did she tell me how to fix the problem, she even gave me the perfect product to finish the shelves.  They look gorgeous now!”

"I’m trying to do all this bathroom reno by myself and as economical as possible so replacing a yellow tub isn’t in the cards right now.  I just keep looking at it and asking myself, what would Becky do?  She suggested tub and tile paint plus sent links on how to DIY it; who knew?  Feeling much more optimistic! ”
