Dip. Interior Decorating & Design
For many years I was a successful Property Developer. With an eye for detail, I would plan and project manage together with a team of builders to deliver the highest quality homes for my Clients. This is where my interest in Interior Design flourished. Having seen the top results of my property sales, others started approaching me to assist them with their own properties for marketing.
I got on average 20 percent more than valuation for my properties and sold them in half the time needed, now that is what you call getting results! My team and I can do the same for you.
I am a graduate of the Interior Decorating & Design Diploma, and having being trained in the finer art of colour, form and finesse I don’t leave anything to chance. I was able to achieve the result that my Clients desired; always getting a quick sale at the best price!
Outside of work I have travelled extensively, from Europe, Asia, USA and the Pacific. I have a great interest in architecture and design have been fortunate in seeing a lot of it all around the world, my most recent trip was to India and China where I visited some of the monuments and architecture of this world including the Taj Mahal and The Great Wall amongst many other ancient buildings and palaces.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my partner Alan and am always looking at enhancing the look of our own home in Hope Island.
I am totally passionate about Interior Design and Property Styling and is a real highlight of my career. I am looking forward to getting my skills to work to create a superb result for you.

Dip. Interior Design Technology
Cert. Digital Design for Furniture &Fashion Fabrics
Although I was born and raised on the Gold Coast I have spent much of my adult life travelling and working around the world, exploring ancient and modern cities, soaking up European and Asian culture and experiencing life in all its diversity. Many of my creative ideas and inspiration for styling are drawn from these experiences.
I was based in London for 3 years where I studied at the world famous arts and design college, Central St. Martin’s. It was there that my love affair with textiles, patterns, colour and art blossomed.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘A picture paints a thousand words’ and our aim at Trends Styling is to transform each home into a picture that speaks directly to its occupants or potential buyers and makes them feel like they are ‘home’.
I have worked in the design industry for the past 13 years and am passionate about all things creative and soulful. Being a gallery represented artist and winning 2nd prize in the 2015 D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards, I love bringing my interior design colour expertise into my paintings.
My passion is for painting contemporary abstract artwork which will also assist us at Trends Styling in using these to complement our Clients interior space, colour scheme and personal style.
