I came to the realization early on in life that I had a passion and a flare for everything related to art and design. From my days at school I was recognized by my art teachers for two things; being exceptional with the use of colours and for my love of ceramics!
When I finished school I had a clear vision for myself developing my career in interior design. Upon leaving school I decided to study further at Telford College in Edinburgh prior to continuing my interior design course at Napier University.
It was when I was in my third year of studying at Napier University I was noticed by one of the lecturers, who was also an established architect, for my interior design potential. He was working on a variety of different projects and requested that I aid and assist him with the designing of the development’s interiors. That was my first experiences with working on large commercial projects and renovations.
I finished my university course and attained my Bachelor of Art. I then worked briefly on the designing of certain government buildings as part of an organisation known as Crown Suppliers. This was a role which was served the whole of Scotland.
The next experience I gained as part of the working world was in the domestic housing market working for one of Scotland’s largest house builders, Wimpey Homes (as it was called then). In this role I was primarily responsible for the interior design of the show homes. During my tenure at Wimpey Homes, I was promoted to senior interior designer. In total, I was under employment with Wimpey Homes for just under 6 years.
In 1997 I was employed by Allied Contracts as their chief designer for Scotland. It was here I was able to further enhance my knowledge and experience in show house design. Much of my work was also featured at the “Ideal Homes Exhibition”. Both Glasgow and London
