When I decided to leave my corporate career in 2010 for a more creative life I spent a lot of time researching what I thought would be the right courses for me. In the end I chose the Interior Decoration courses at Chelsea College of Arts, because they had an extra creative edge being part of a prestigious art school, had a good variety of course structures to suit my constantly changing life and were excellent value for money. I also valued the fact that all the tutors were practising career professionals. Having completed courses at Chelsea myself and then launched a successful design career I feel I can bring a real understanding and experience to teaching new students and often end up answering numerous practical questions about how I've managed to change career and set up a creative business.
