Tristan Gary was raised in Houston, Texas. After living in South Africa and London, she moved back home to Seattle, Washington where she received her B.A. from Seattle Pacific University in Interior Design. After completing her internship at Hewitt Architecture, she established her own design firm.
She has been active in service and non-profit organizations for many years, including the Puget Sound Leadership Council of Medical Teams International (MTI), fundraising for Union Gospel Mission, Boys & Girls Clubs, as well as private families in Africa who cared for HIV+ children who had been abandoned or orphaned.
Tristan’s experience began while living abroad, soaking up different cultures and styles through her travels. She discovered her passion while working with local craftsmen and women, transforming homes. Her commitment to culture, home, family, community, and beauty is what then led her to enroll at Seattle Pacific University.
