About me

I am a naturally creative person, with a particular interest in interior design. I am fascinated by the enormous impact our environment can have on us - to relax, inspire, encourage and excite. I am lucky enough to have spent much of my life on the West coast of Ireland and I am continually inspired by the wild and rugged coast. I love creating with whatever I have found on the beach, pressed wildflowers and local natural tweeds. I am eager and ambitious. As a self-confessed perfectionist, I devote all my energy and imagination to the job at hand.

BA 2:1 History

University of Bristol

  • The research-heavy nature of my university degree demanded that I was self-motivated and driven in order to meet deadlines. Also, my degree proves I am able to present evidence in a convincing and appropriate manner. I found it particularly exciting probing historically accepted truths and striving for originality. I enjoyed meeting fellow students and researching presenting group projects to our peers.
