Her products are sharp and contemporary, drawing inspiration from the traditions of Provence and her years of extensive travel.  Her collections have a British aesthetic mixed with the legendary style of France.

The collection has grown to include many other lifestyle accessories.

She has excelled in the world of design from the outset and is delighted to be able to bring her talent and luxury and original gifts to a wider audience.
