Further Information

I am totally addicted to upholstery.

It all began when I attended an upholstery course at West Dean College Chichester, held by the most talented, inspiring tutor who enhanced the character of his furniture through his beautiful, traditional upholstery work. Well, I was absolutely mesmerised with the artistry and craftsmanship of upholstery. So, several courses later and lots of practice I am enjoying upholstering the sparkle back into friends tired chairs and sofas, using traditional upholstery skills.

I have always been fascinated by the expression that furniture displays of itself, through its form and materials and of us, through our choices of style, placement and use. Presently, I am exploring ways furniture, which looks sad and below its best, can be re-invigorated. Using traditional upholstery skills and modern designs, I am interested to create a distinctive quality and style, which develops the character of the furniture and welcomes it back into our households
