About me

I have been sourcing and selling antiques, and doing interior decorating projects for many years. I find auctions and antique fairs so exciting: The chance of finding interesting, unusual pieces to transform with faded colours and distressed finishes – whether a chest of drawers or a beautiful shaped French fauteuil. And I love all the decorative accessories that make a room so individual and comfortable.

It has been a pleasure to have students come to Haconby for workshops over the past ten years, but have now decided to finish the courses to dedicate more time to my new project in the chapel. Joining forces with the other girls is so exciting, so I hope you will visit us.

Please contact me with any enquiries, or to arrange a visit to the new Garden Room in the Chapel.
