I started out on a market stall in Portobello Road nearly 30 years ago when I was studying politics and economics.The excitement of beautiful old objects and early morning markets was hard to resist and I went on to work for a few leading dealers in Westbourne Grove. Eventually I set up my own shop in Holland Park selling to a local and international client base.
Over 15 years I was fortunate enough to work on many interesting projects, learning and drawing inspiration from talented interior designers and stylish clients who welcomed me into their homes. I left the shop to establish an online auction house of which I was the co-director for 5 years, holding regular pop up sales across West London.
For the last few years I have been living peacefully in nature on the Isle of Wight, where I’ve project managed the build of my own house as a base for remote working. I travel a lot now and source interesting pieces from the network of dealers I have established in France, Denmark and Italy.
I exhibit at the Battersea Decorative Antiques fair 3 times a year and am in London most weeks for personal deliveries.
