Being chosen as one of the top ten designers to appear on Interior Design Masters was a fantastic surprise and such a confidence boost as the design world has so many talented designers and creatives and so I consider myself really lucky and honoured to be picked out off all those who applied.
My friends said that it took real bravery from me to take time out from my People Development career of 24 years to focus on my other passion.
The show has given me an opportunity to share my love for interiors and to challenge and push myself.
I hope that by showing my vulnerability, drive and following my passion it may inspire others to do the same.
