INNOVATION THROUGH DESIGN
THE ARTIST / FOUNDER
Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Artist Lee Lefebvre (pronounced "LaFave") has had a passion for designing all his life. Having grown up in the heart of nature, he was constantly surrounded by water, and unbeknownst to him, design and water would define his professional career.
In 1998, Lefebvre graduated from Durham College in Ontario, with honors in Mechanical Engineering. Immediately after, he secured the position of Quality Manager for a manufacturing facility of U-Nova Hose Corporation. During his employment, he solely implemented and certified the company with the ISO 9001 international standard for quality. In 2001, Lefebvre was hired over the phone for the position of Manufacturing Engineer with Overland Storage in San Diego, CA. Leaving his friends and family behind, he took a leap of faith that would change his life forever. While employed with the company, he received many accolades, and his department was repeatedly showcased to other larger companies because of his industry leading manufacturing processes. During this time, a passion for something greater started to ignite, and Lefebvre left the company to pursue his dream.
In 2003, Lefebvre founded LL Waterfall Design with a passion for design, and a strong foundation of engineering, manufacturing, and quality. This combination quickly proved successful. One of his memorable moments was being recruited by ABC's "Extreme Makeover Home Edition" and personally working with Ty Pennington. Today, Lefebvre continues to be an active part of the design process and travels worldwide to an array of clientele demanding the uniqueness, innovation, and quality of his work.
"By DESIGN we are lifeless without WATER, but our lives are less without WATER DESIGN." - Lee Lefebvre
