Personal Summary:

I have worked in the design field for nearly 30 years. In the past I have co-owned a furniture manufacturing company with its own retail store where we designed a full range of domestic and contract furniture. Presently I am a partner in the retail store Gorgeous where we source high quality interior products and gift items with a stylish contemporary remit. We frequently visit Maison et Object, Tent, 100% Design, Showcase and many other trade shows. We strive to seek out product of international design credibility, made from appropriate materials, packaged to entice and at price points that sell. (www.gorgeousgiftsandinteriors.com)

Mentoring Experience:

I have worked with the UN in the Sudan in the area of craft product design and development leading to the setting up of wholesale and retail working groups. I have facilitated a product design (lighting) block with NCAD. In my interior design practice I work with a variety of trade and crafts people on a project basis, often with restricted budgets and tight deadlines, to reach design solutions that satisfy our clients’ requirements.
