I was destined to be a creator of beautiful things; an artist and designer.
Growing up in England’s green and pleasant countryside, I drew, doodled, sketched and painted my way through school, art college and university, where I graduated with a BA(hons) in Fashion and Textiles.
I lived in Geneva, Switzerland for 12 years before moving to Sydney in 2010 with my wonderful husband and 2 children.
For the past 16 years I have created art, fabrics and beautiful chairs for clients around the world; hotels, restaurants, bars, French champagne houses, diplomatic residences, interior design shops and private homes.
I fell in love with chairs from a young age; my Dutch grandparents’ fireside chairs were custom made in 1953. I inherited my Grandma’s chair recently and it sits in my home, bursting with idyllic childhood memories and love.
Today I create custom chairs and redesign, repair and reupholster old chairs. I design custom fabrics and source specific fabrics for my clients. I also design and paint canvas art for walls, and graphic illustrations for businesses.
I am happiest when I am creating beautiful things for my clients; seeing their joy on delivery day makes my soul sing.
Life is too short for ugliness; surround yourself with beauty. And beautiful chairs ~ chairs with soul, memories and personality ~ bring happiness every time you walk into a room.
Together, let’s create beauty and happiness – let’s create a chair for you to cherish for years to come.
