After graduating from the Royal College of Art with a Masters in Mixed Media Textiles, I set up my studio in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, where I design, make, and run all sorts of creative workshops to hopefully inspire and bring colour into other peoples lives!
I have a passion for bright colour, influenced by time spent living in the Caribbean and South and Central America, which has had a big impact on my design style. This is coupled with an equal love for collecting thrifty homely 'stuff' and gathering bits and bobs from weird and wonderful places, I'd probably describe myself as a maximalist!
My work is as much about aesthetics as ‘eco’! All products are hand-made using reclaimed materials which ensure every design is completely one off, creating something individual for your home.
Myself, partner and two small boys Rupert and Bob have been renovating a 17th Century cottage in Derbyshire, which is a labour of love and I have a life's worth of exciting Interior design projects ahead of me!
I currently teach Interior Design at Nottingham Trent University, and run a range of Interior related courses from home in my colourful kitchen in a relaxed environment-with lots of tea and cake! See my workshop page.
