Portrait No 20 – Victoria, interior designer and furniture boutique owner

This week I had the pleasure of meeting Victoria who is the first of a few people that are very local to me. Much as I enjoy travelling around and love that this project has taken me to lots of different places its great to have a few people that are virtually on my doorstep – especially when we keep getting snow forecast, I can walk to quite a few of my upcoming volunteers !

I got to meet Victoria in just her second week of full time self employment, having successfully started Little France Boutique whilst she was employed full time Victoria had taken the plunge and left her job at Christmas to concentrate fully on her business which had grown from a passion for all things interior design related.

As well as interior design Victoria loving upcycles furniture and makes cushions from the most beautiful fabrics.

Portrait No 3 – Tricia, Quilter and Fabric Supplier

Its taken me a few days from photographing Tricia to blogging her portrait – I’ve been wrestling with a decision in that time. I’ve been really undecided as to whether this project should be completely in black & white or whether some people would need colour.

I’m still a little undecided and I may well come back and update this post with the black and white versions but for the time being it’s colour. Tricia’s business is after all about colour and texture, her love of quilting and dissatisfaction with her job lead her to start her own business supplying quilting fabrics at craft fairs and to quilters groups. Tricia’s passion is infectious, its hard to listen to her talk about her love of fabrics and textures without stroking the nearest fabric and I found myself getting excited about the patterns even though I wouldn’t have a clue about quilt making !

I’m trying really hard to limit myself to two images per person, so here are my two. I’m sure some people may think the second doesn’t qualify as a portrait but I’m a firm believer in portraits not necessarily needing faces.

Tricia’s business is Tilia Fabric and she can be found on Facebook.
