Do you really want to delete project Craft - Charmingly imperfect hand stitched tweed cushions?
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.

Experienced the importance of customer care in a high-end retail business; the tall standards of professionalism, the positivity and appearance expected; the value of working in a team and the nature of selling. As well as, the basics of stock control, use of the till and importance of punctuality and reliability.
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.
