Lee-Ann was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. During her high school years she was scouted by International Top Models which resulted in a modeling contract taking her to Toronto, Montreal, and New York City. For several years, Lee-Ann owned and operated a prominent furniture and decorating boutique, Country Details, in Ottawa’s premiere downtown business address, the Clarica Centre. Lee-Ann specialized in custom designed interior accessories and art for a discriminating clientele.
Lee-Ann’s extensive travel experience throughout North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Middle East has been instrumental in creating and developing her eclectic style, both in her interior design concepts and her paintings. In 1999, she founded Lee-Ann LaCroix and Associates, a successful decorating company. One of her primary motivations is to introduce a new generation of clients to the value of good design and the importance of interior environments that reflect one’s own personal style. Lee-Ann’s design philosophy transcends international borders as she has clients in France, Argentina and Canada.
