After working as a freelance jewellery designer for ten years, I retrained at the Mid Warwickshire College of Further Education under the tutelage of the master craftswoman Pearl Rudge. I studied part-time for parts I and II City and Guilds in upholstery and soft furnishing. I completed this in 1991.

Since then I have run my own upholstery and soft furnishing business from my studio in Leamington Spa.

I have a loyal client base of more than 120 people, all recommendations, to whom I give advice regarding interior decoration, suitability and sourcing of fabrics and colour schemes. My forte is bringing my passion for colour and fabrics together to bring out the best in rooms and furniture.
