what I do and how I do it
One could say I had an unusual international upbringing being born into a nomadic family with a flair for antiques and beautiful objects. This has imbued the ability to breathe hues, textures and colours from each place I have lived. I began my journey in late 1970 in south America, passing through Australia and Italy before gently unfolding my roots on UK grounds.
At last, one would say, I have settled.
So home is home again, I breathe the meaning of it.
access to one’s predestined path isn’t always straightforward and often, most likely farfetched; maybe bad timing or just not the right time for us. that is when the backstage door goes often unnoticed, people forget that there are many ways to access one’s own stage and with that, all the many greater possibilities that follow.
I ended up working in Interior Design, helping people create a harmonious working and living environment because it gives me that ”feel good” feeling from knowing that other people are feeling ok in their own space. I ensure aspects of interior architecture, lighting design, layout, and decoration are well balanced together in the classical Western approach to design and well taken care of.
nonetheless, it is not just about the house nor the space we navigate that matters to me.
sensitive to the constant evolution of ideas and also to feed a growing need for an expanded vision, I am now looking to the East by taking a new journey into Feng Shui. This is the ancient Chinese art and science that is based on a system of laws laid to govern spatial order and orientation in relation to the flow of Qi. Ultimately Feng Shui creates balance and harmony with oneself and the environment.
