Jorie Clark (Carmel Valley Residence, page 176) has, since 1994, run her own design business specializing in residential and hospitality jobs throughout northern California. Growing up in a household where her mother owned an antique shop and her brother prepared to become an architectural historian, her early interest in design was bound to shape her career direction. She studied the subject at Sierra Nevada College and Monterey Peninsula College, then gained practical experience working with Jan Gardener Interior Design and, thereafter, architect Frank Hennessy. Among recent accomplishments as an independent practitioner are the restoration of the 1929 Spanish revival Cypress Inn owned by Doris Day, and several domestic installations within a large radius of San Francisco and Carmel. She received an ASID award of excellence for the Ashton residence job. Jorie Clark Design, 100 Arboleda Lane, Carmel Valley, CA 93924, (831) 659-8036.
Jerrold E. Lomax (Carmel Valley Residence, page 176), FAIA, founded his design firm in Los Angeles in 1962, which he subsequently moved to Carmel in 1995. He earned his B.Arch. degree at the University of Houston, then returned to California. Active in varied phases of design, he is about to launch three major projects: a mixed-use structure in Sand City, an office/aircraft hanger building in Monterey, and—perhaps his favorite—a residence "on a wooden plateau, the surf crashing on three sides 100 feet beneath," in Big Sur. He is a visiting critic at universities including his alma mater, belongs to many industry organizations, and has garnered a multitude of professional awards. Jerrold E. Lomax, 3600 High Meadow Drive, #42, Carmel, CA 93923, (831) 659-7502.
