Jane graduated from University College, Oxford, and then went on to have a successful career in the City as a media strategist. After reading Paulo Coelho’s tale, The Alchemist, about following your dreams she decided it was time to leave media strategy and take up interior design. Jane completed the full-time Diploma in 2008.
"KLC provided me with the springboard by which to gain experience at some of the best interior design houses in the world and set up my own business,” said Jane. “It was a life changing experience - that was one of the best decisions I ever made."
After working for David Collins, Honky and Richard Spark she established her own design practice in South West London. Jane works on a range of residential and commercial projects including private clients, property developers, bars, gyms, restaurants, retail outlets and the odd super yacht.
Highlights of her career in design to date have been graduating from KLC upon completing the full-time Diploma as ‘Top Interior Design Student’, installation of the award-winning penthouse at Gunwharf Quays and the current project that she is working on. A final highlight has been going back to teach at KLC when she has the time – for her, it means that she can continue to contribute to the growth and development of the industry…
As an outlet for her passion for design she also has her blog that provides a brief insight into some of the things that she loves and introduces some relatively simple ideas for improving your home. She hopes it will inspire people to take an interest in interior design.
