I have had the privileged to be a custodian for a grade II listed thatched timber framed cottage. I had no idea what I had let myself in for. It really is a labour of love. I have learnt so much and gained new skills during my renovation and repair of the beautiful historic building.
As a result I have a lot of time and respect for historical items. I appreciate the craftsmanship of items Salvage, up-cycled and restored.
After completing my Art A level I went onto study Art and Design at Chelsea school of Art in London. This love for fine art and painting has been with me ever since I can remember.
It was over twenty years ago that I first discovered Annie Sloan chalk paint and started painting my own furniture. Ever since then I have dreamed of having my own shop.
I progressed to hand painting customers furniture nearly 10 years ago and I can honestly say I really enjoy it. I love the challenges it brings, but most of all I love the look of joy on my customers face when I produce their completed and restored furniture.
I work on one commission at a time and really appreciate that people trust me with items that are part of their family. I take great pride and care in getting them delivered back safely and restored to a high standard.
I have built up my customers purely on recommendations and word of mouth. The service I provide is personal and individual. I use Annie Sloan paints as my preferred choice, I occasionally use Farrow and Ball and Autentico paint. I am happy to use your preference on request.
I offer colour consultation and interior design advice this has been a life long passion of mine so if you like my style feel free to contact me to arrange a consultation.
Please contact me if you need any help or advice.
I offer commission work.

Whats your returns policy?

“As others have mentioned one commission turned into two and there is so much more I want her to do - she is fantastic. I highly recommend her!”
