I’m very excited to be teaming up with the eminently talented textile design and screen printing mother and daughter duo, Michelle and Stephanie Witts of Witts Design.

I was very flattered to be approached by Michelle and Stephanie to work on this unique project with them. They’d seen my work at the Country Living Spring Fair earlier on this year when they were exhibitors and I was a guest painter and speaker.

Together we’ll be showcasing our individual skills and talents in an exciting collaboration where we work closely together to upcycle, restore, hand paint and reupholster this beautiful pair of antique chairs.

a little bit about Witts Design…

Like me, they’re a relatively young business, but already they’re making big waves in the world of bespoke textile design. I just love their beautiful, cutting edge and contemporary fabrics, which ooze individuality and charm.

the collaboration…

Together, they came up with the fabulous idea of our two businesses working on a project together. They got in touch with me, I loved what they had to say, I adore their work and I couldn’t wait to get on board! Here's a sketch of the chairs I did, with my ideas for paint colours alongside some samples of fabric...

As a specialist furniture painter who strives to create unique pieces, I knew our designs and work ethos would mesh together perfectly and I’m very excited at the prospect of what this collaboration could lead to and the doors it could open for both of our businesses.

upcoming exhibitions…

Over the coming months we’ll be showcasing the chairs and lamp at a series of shows. The first of which is Kirsty Allsopp’s The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace in London between the 19th – 21st September. So, if you’re in the area do stop by and say “hello”

let us create your very own bespoke furniture…

We’re also delighted to confirm that you can purchase the chairs and the lamp at The Handmade Fair. Alternatively, if you’d like us to create your very own completely bespoke hand painted and reupholstered furniture, just get in touch.
