Georgina Paix | Founder & Director
it all started...
As with a lot of small businesses, it all started from the kitchen table, after a decade long career as a COO for a ME think tank.
I had some major surgery in 2012 which necessitated a re-evaluation of my professional life. This, along with the inheritance of some old (and rather beautiful!) furniture resulted in lots of upholstery tuition with Alison Scott and a soft furnishings course with Deborah Good - both incredibly talented & experienced tutors.
One of my first commissions was curtains for a rather prestigious client. I was also asked to help choose rugs some of the rooms in this similarly prestigious property. The client was not in residence and I needed to somehow convey how various rugs would look - this is how the Visualisation & Design Service started. I downloaded some 3d software and started modelling. Needless to say - over the years, how I model & draw has developed significantly. My current personal preference is for a hybrid visual: a fusion of a photograph and pencil drawing – they seem to me to be less ‘sterile’ than a photograph.
