My degree was in Fine Art at University. Painting for three years was amazing but the job market eventually led me to marketing,
graphics and photoshoot production before re-training as an upholsterer. Furniture commissions keep me very busy but I also love to find
and save pieces of furniture too. Using modern and traditional techniques, I use my experience with art, design, and craft to create unique pieces of furniture.
I trained and studied with the Association of Master Upholsterers, at the Cass Art Faculty
of Design, in the east end of London.
After five years of studying; learning upholstery, wood restoration and soft furnishings, I started my own small business. A new journey began,
for me and my two children (left).
Each project is collaborative, whether it's a modern chair or antique sofa, I work with my client to create the perfect piece for their home.
Cheap, conveyor-belt type furniture has a
limited life span. The quality of the upholstery can mean the difference between lasting two years or forty years. Craftsmanship is important to me and I believe furniture should last decades.
My vision is to produce one-off pieces of furniture, whether it's a family heirloom,
a beloved old friend or a new modern piece.
The aim is to make sure it looks amazing in
your house and no one else has the same!
