Part disciplined craftsman, part warehouser of beautiful things, I've learned that a well upholstered piece of furniture, like a great bag, repays you time and time again

Laura Knight at the National Portrait Gallery

Laura Knight, an English Dame, tough as old boots, dab hand with a paint brush, and subject of a current exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Catch it before it closes on 13 October. Read my interview with curator of the exhibition, Rosie Broadley, here.

If you would like to know more, get your skates on to the NPG next weekend, as Rosie will be in conversation with Hattie Morahan, the actress who played Laura Knight in this year’s film, Summer in February, out on DVD next week. Last tickets available here ..

Traditional or modern rehauls, be it family castoff, online find, or holiday souvenir. I upholster, recover, patch up, or design from scratch.


Get organised with custom crafted sleek leather accessories. Every day seems a little easier with an organised bag, work journal, bookcover, or technology protection. Great as gifts or just for you.


Headboards, cushions, blinds, and bedthrows: coordinate the home you dream of and have fun with colour and texture.
