Based nr. Harrogate, North Yorkshire, I began Imaginative Interiors in 1999 and now travel throughout Yorkshire and the UK transforming and rejuvenating furniture and kitchens to the highest level. I use an array of specialist hand painted finishes. These include;
Brush Mark Free Block Colour
French ‘Shabby Chic’
Unique Hand Painted Designs
At 22 I began training under Nicola Creasy, a highly talented interior designer and decorative artist now working in the US. Over the next few years I refined and enhanced my skills, obtained a diploma in Professional Paint Finishes from The National Design Academy and set up Imaginative Interiors.
Now with over 13 years professional experience working for private and commercial clients, interior designers and developers, Imaginative Interiors has grown into one of the country's leading bespoke painting companies.
