My interest in the Arts & Crafts Movement and in particular William Morris, began in my teenage years when I fell in love with Morris’s textile prints. After reading many biographies and publications about the great designer, I also fell in love with the man. In 2009 I turned my passion for the Arts & Crafts Movement into a career by starting my own business selling home interiors in the style of the Arts & Crafts era. I have been lecturing about topics related to the Arts & Crafts Movement since 2010 and am an accredited lecturer with The Arts Society (formerly known as NADFAS).
As well as Arts Society groups around the country, I have given lectures for amongst others: The William Morris Society, The National Trust, The Arts & Crafts Movement in Surrey association, Women's Institute groups throughout Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, regional groups from The University of the Third Age (U3A), The Sick Children's Trust, The Cambridge Antiques Society and The Society of Cambridge Tour Guides.
I am a member and former Trustee of The William Morris Society as well as an active member of the following Arts & Crafts Movement related societies: Friends of Red House, The Friends of the William Morris Gallery, The Arts & Crafts Movement in Surrey and The CFA Voysey Society.
