About Me

My business combines a lifelong interest in imaginative design with expertise for creative upholstery and soft furnishings. 

Having worked for The Royal Household based at Windsor Castle I have been fortunate to work on 19th century furniture with original upholstery, the finest silks, and furniture in daily use within Royal Residences. Carrying out restoration and conservation of antique pieces, as well as undertaking contemporary upholstery, made this role wholly unique.

In complete contrast, my experience working in the film industry offered a fast paced, thrilling environment yet maintaining a commitment to high quality and details.  It was a pleasure to work on films such as The Aeronauts, James Bond and Cruella.

All of this is a far cry from my first chosen career as an Army Officer and Civil Servant in the Ministry of Defence – from muddy boots and drab green uniform to silk walls and ‘lights, camera, action’.
