I'm the founder of Hana & George, which I run from my workshop in Somerset.
I studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, one of the world's leading art and design colleges, and since then have completed extensive training in traditional and modern upholstery.
I've always had a love of art and design, and I decided it was time to follow my passion and start my own business. I find it incredibly rewarding to take an old family heirloom or an antique shop find and work with my customers to restore their piece to its former glory.
My priority is to create beautiful but functional items of furniture that my clients and their families will treasure for years to come.
When I'm not working on a piece of furniture, I also curate the Hana & George blog, which is my virtual sketchbook. Every day I add a sample of the things that have inspired me – from furniture and fashion, to fabrics and wallpapers.
My faithful companion, George the Pug, joins me in my workshop each day.
