I have been inspired for many years now, starting during my architectural studies at Bristol University. I selected lighting for my dissertation as I have always been fascinated by how natural light can penetrate a building, how the use of skylight windows articulates this and have a significant effect on the appearance of a building. This led to a study of how, as daylight faded, I could articulate a totally different impression with artificial light. This would sometimes be a total contrast to the downward effect of natural light with uplight. Playing with reflection and direct glazing techniques.

In the 80’s, during my early years in the field, I was one of the first women to choose lighting as a career when hardly anyone was pursuing this. Still to this day, I am in love and continually inspired by this medium. I still will commission schemes until the early hours of the morning to achieve perfection. I still feel that everyday I am so lucky to be inspired by this work.
