A Freelance Upholsterer based in the centre of Portsmouth with a degree in Contemporary Furniture Design and over a decade of experience in the domestic and contract sectors.

“How things have been designed and built, the history, the changing styles and most of all the people and stories behind furniture is why I love what I do.  I take on a variety of projects, using research and experience to make and restore furniture with sensitivity and skill.  This includes finding the perfect fabrics and making the absolute most of patterns,  with an ethical use of materials and, where possible, woodwork restoration.”
