Lighting Designer Williams Started her Career in Theatrical Lighting
Illuminart, a division of Peter Basso Associates (PBA), Michigan’s largest MEP consulting-only organization, is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Williams has become Lighting Certified by the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP).
According to the NCQLP website, becoming Lighting Certified requires a …“certification process by which practitioners in lighting and related fields, through testing, demonstrate their knowledge and experience across the lighting professions.” (NCQLP, 2019)
After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatrical Design and Production from the University of Michigan, Williams served as a lighting designer for theatrical productions, dance academies and even indie films, but eventually found the work to be too limiting and instead began to focus her interests on the architectural lighting design industry.
In 2017, Illuminart's Elizabeth Williams was featured as an Emerging Professional in LD+A magazine. In the article, Williams described her theatrical journey to LD+A magazine (the magazine of the Illuminating Engineering Society), of how she went from a theatrical lighting designer to a successful architectural lighting designer.
Williams has played an integral role in lighting design for several prominent PBA and Illuminart projects including Bedrock Detroit's, One Campus Martius, Microsoft 5th Floor Tenant Improvement, Detroit, Michigan, Church of the Holy Family Interior Lighting, Novi, Michigan and the UAW National Programs Center Interior Lighting, Detroit, Michigan.
