A native New Orleanian, Troy Wilson’s journey as a creative began at an early age after being diagnosed with Dyslexia. Turning an obstacle into an advantage, Dyslexia motivated him to hone his skills in the areas of design and the visual arts. Troy further refined his design talents while working with Expressions as a visual merchandiser and showroom designer, helping to develop their signature look at showrooms throughout the country.

After seven creative years with Expressions, Troy was recruited by Jacqueline Vance to design a line of rugs for her company. It was at Jacqueline Vance Rugs that Troy and Karin first met and discovered their shared mutual passion for interior design. It wasn’t long after meeting that the idea of forming a design partnership began to develop and in the spring of 2001, Nelson Wilson Interiors was born.

When not working, he can be found visiting with friends, hanging their artwork or rearranging their furniture.
