Summary

Previous employers and architects have said about me that I am 5 employees rolled into one; I am versatile while maintaining skill and dedication. Although I have a diploma in Interior Design I have vast experience in numerous fields such as business, general, office, showroom and project management; marketing; graphic presentation; buying and art. Through my ability to adapt and learn I have gained the kind of experience which would be valuable to any company who would afford me the opportunity.

Above being a talented and dedicated designer I would say that my greatest talent is overseeing design and knowing what works. After years of experience in numerous design fields I have the ability to look at a design and find the flaws or know when it is just right. I naturally take in knowledge of trends around me and know what people want.

Projects

Heritage House

In keeping with Heritage Western Cape guidelines, I enjoyed the challenging task of converting a Heritage Duet in Mossel Bay into a contemporary single home making provision for the home to be used as a guest house. I was responsible for the complete design of the home, inside and out. Liaising with Heritage Western Cape, the municipality and managing of the project were all part of the scope of work. I have loaded before and after photos. This home was featured in the Homeowner magazine 2011.
