About Us

The Feasby & Bleeks Design team takes pride in our longstanding professional and personal relationships — with tradespeople, with suppliers, with clients, and with our own team. Erin Feasby and Cindy Bleeks have been best friends since university, and co-founded Feasby & Bleeks Design in 2009. The business that began at Cindy’s and Erin’s dining room tables has grown to include an incredible team of talented individuals, who collaborate on all aspects of their design projects.

Erin Feasby

Principal Designer

A love of theatre initially inspired Erin to pursue a career in set design with a Bachelor of Interior Design degree from Ryerson. After graduating, however, she rediscovered her childhood sketchbooks filled with floor plans and home designs, and realized her talent had been for residential interior design all along. She began her career at a high-end design build firm working on custom residential and large-scale cottage projects. She then spent 10 years as Senior Design Editor at Canadian House & Home magazine, where she oversaw numerous makeovers and created some of their most popular features, such as Decorating 101 and the grand prize show homes for the Princess Margaret Home Lottery. Since founding FBD in 2009 with Cindy Bleeks, Erin balances her time between her busy career and family time spent with her husband Sam, son Max, and identical twin daughters Emmy and Lola.

Cindy Bleeks

Principal Designer

Design isn’t always about straight lines. Cindy once considered her sketching, painting and tinkering in her father’s woodshop just hobbies. She even began a science degree before pivoting to her true passion, interior design. She transferred to Ryerson, where she met Erin and the pair became fast friends. After receiving her Bachelor of Interior Design, Cindy began working for high-end clientele between Toronto, New York and West Palm Beach before founding her own design firm in 2002. During this time, Cindy designed both residential and commercial interiors, as well as illustrating and styling features and advertorials for Canadian House & Home magazine. In 2009, Cindy and Erin merged their complementary aesthetic and vision to create Feasby & Bleeks Design. Outside of the office, you can usually find Cindy at the hockey rink with her son Gray, baking with daughter Piper, or being walked by her yellow Lab, Hal.

Helen Casanova<br />
Studio Coordinator

Helen Casanova

Studio Coordinator

In high school, Helen was torn between accounting and design. Design ultimately won, and she attended the Ontario College of Art & Design and graduated from their Industrial Design program. Over time, Helen became more interested in the organization and finances of the companies she worked for, and transitioned to a role as an office manager for a design build firm. Helen has more than 10 years of experience as an office manager, and her unique credentials make her a perfect fit for Feasby & Bleeks Design. As Cindy and Erin like to joke, Helen is really the one in charge!

Lara Curbelo<br />
Senior Designer

Lara Curbelo

Senior Designer

After completing her education in interior design at Humber College, Lara worked for nearly 20 years at the very same design build firm where Erin began her career. In fact, Erin owes a lot of her technical skills to the training she received from Lara in those early years. Lara’s expertise in drawing, both by hand and on AutoCad, is a valued skill set that she brought to Feasby & Bleeks Design beginning in 2010. When she sets down her drawing tools, she loves spending time with husband Mario, sons Cristofer and Marcus, and her dog, Indie.
Carolina Valencia Senior Designer

Carolina Valencia

Senior Designer

Carolina loved to spend hours decorating and changing the furniture layout of her bedroom during her childhood in Colombia. She later moved to Canada and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Humber College. Her favourite part of the design process is space planning and millwork design. When she’s not designing at work, she’s coming up with designs for her own spaces. A master DIYer, there isn’t anything Carolina can’t do or hasn’t taught herself. She also loves to get outside with husband Sebastian, son Maxi and their mini Yorkie, Charlie.
Morgan Vandriel<br />
Junior Designer

Morgan Vandriel

Junior Designer

Morgan is living proof that time spent as a child building, designing and furnishing homes in a Sims virtual world is NOT a waste! She combined these spatial skills with her love of fine arts and hands-on crafts and DIY to pursue a degree in Interior Design from George Brown College. She joined Feasby & Bleeks Design in 2022 and keeps busy outside of work maintaining honeybee hives with her partner Chris and adding new travel destinations to her bucket list.
Hal | Feasby & Bleeks Office Dog

Hal

Office Dog

Hal, Cindy’s yellow Lab, holds a position as office greeter and team cheerleader. His design aesthetic is an acquired taste, consisting mainly of scattered bones, toys and shed fur. His hobbies include refusing to climb the office stairs and looking for pets and treats in between naps. He is currently on probation for getting caught sleeping on the job.
