My architectural work enabled me to work with Chetwood Associates on their Millennium Dome design and other high profile clients included Tesco, Sainsbury’s and RFU. I also taught 3D animation as part of social media studies at Brixton University as well as teaching within Architect Studios.
When I began travelling, I started focusing more on commissioned work and painting as it fitted better with my lifestyle and I enjoyed my return to creating art with pencils, pens and paintbrushes.
I love being around people and have always been sought after for my opinion on “arty stuff”, so it was a natural progression for me to become more involved in my friends’ social events and weddings. My first large wedding commission was for a friend’s wedding in Royal Tunbridge Wells. It was a very large wedding in the most beautiful surroundings and I was honoured to be asked to design and make the whole range of wedding stationery for that very special day. I have since worked on many weddings and have a substantial portfolio of work. At a wedding last year, my bride suggested I branch out to use my creativity on wedding shoes. The rest, as they say, is history….
Debs London was born.
Being involved in such a special day in peoples’ lives gives me a feel of accomplishment and joy to see the happiness that it creates. Also, my ability to transfer some of the stress away from the bride, knowing that what I am creating will be perfect and delivered on time, is very important to me.
