    Location Dulwich, SE London, UK

    Education Ware College Hertfordshire UK, 1996-98: Diploma in Display and Design and was awarded student of the year in my final year.


    After leaving college I joined the display team with Hamleys on Regent Street London. Every day was a different experience whether we'd be changing window displays, making props or cute little outfits for the teddies but I reluctantly left after four years to join a new visual production team with Selfridges on nearby Oxford Street. Here my main role was Christmas '24-7' being involved with making props for both Christmas windows and the grotto but after two years I left to go it alone and become freelance!

    My work ever since has been so varied and ranges from covering room makeovers or complete house features for interior magazines or styling for interior and craft books to seasonal displays for stores, pubs, hotels, weddings, parties and private clients. Over the years I have also worked alongside my husband renovating and transforming property which is my favourite biggest passion of all.
