About Me

I have been decorating and building furniture for 10 years, from small cosmetic jobs to the renovation of whole houses. I offer a friendly, reliable and affordable service to a high professional standard.

Previous projects have included: sprucing up a buy-to-let property; freshening up tired kitchen units; complete re-decoration to a high-end finish of a 3 storey home, interior and exterior; project management of a large, detached house in London from a concrete shell, overseeing teams of craftsmen and builders; replacing broken hinges on kitchen cabinets; painting a garden shed; fixing a large hole in a plasterboard wall; re-decoration of a 1 bedroom flat; making and painting garden planters; designing, making and installing two double sized fitted wardrobes; making and installing ‘floating’ shelving in an alcove; painting an industrial unit for a beer bottling company; constructing several items of flat-pack furniture; floor sanding; hanging pictures; refurbishing much loved but tired pieces of furniture. I can also undertake small to medium carpentry jobs as well as basic maintenance around your home or office.

I am a member of Dulux Select and the government-funded TrustMark programme.

I also offer a consultancy service. This is aimed at clients who would like a professional finish but don’t have the budget or knowledge/skills to achieve this on their own.

I would come to your home to view the job and write a work plan for you, detailing the following:

  • The order in which the work needs to be done;
  • The materials and tools required;
  • The amount of materials required.

I would then spend as much time with you as you need and show you how to do the tasks required to achieve an excellent finish.

I would be available via the phone if you required any further help or support once your consultation is over.


Flexible, committed worker and a great finish to all the work.
Highly recommended decorator.

Gary Nolan

Excellent repair work and first-class finish.

Sarah Robinson

Can’t fault her. Punctual, polite, helpful and tidied up after herself.
Prep and finishing is the best I’ve seen, room looks like new.

Philippa Desiderio

I chose Gill because she is female and hopefully more reliable.
Best decorator I’ve ever had, so I would highly recommend.

Helen Toon

Gill was excellent. She was totally upfront and straightforward. Her enduring priority was to provide a professional job and she takes evident pride in her work.

Gareth Mann

Pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend her. Very clean and tidy.

Toni Richfield

Good communication and worked long days. The work was done to a high standard.

Antony O’Brien

I was completely satisfied with the job Gill did. Communicated well and always kept me updated with progress. Turned up when she said she would. She is very organised and tidy, thorough and considerate. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend.

Eddie Gadd

Gill decorated our entire office, which comprises approximately 3,000 square feet. I would highly recommend Gill. She was highly organised, efficient and was able to work in the confines of a busy solicitor’s office. Her work was extremely thorough and of the highest quality, which included very thorough preparation work. Gill always cleaned up the site at the end of each evening and finished the job in line with the schedule provided at the outset. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gill for future work.

Gill has done various painting jobs in our offices over several years, from full rooms to touching up high use areas. She recently redecorated the whole building. She is always very flexible, which allows us to work without disruption. We have clients coming and going throughout the day and so it’s very much appreciated that she works quietly and tidily. No blaring radio or equipment getting in the way! I have also used Gill to paint my own flat, as I’ve been so impressed by her professionalism, commitment and customer focus. I would highly recommend Gill for all your decorating needs!

All Global Viewing

Gill is a fab decorator! She has done lots of decorating for me over a number of years and she is great. She doesn’t make a mess and makes sure that every electrical fitting and door knob is screwed back on afterwards. She prepares properly and doesn’t splash paint everywhere. I could not recommend her more highly.

Nicola Horlick

If you need to get a decorator in that you trust, are happy to leave your keys with, is friendly and smiley, turns up when she says she is going to, cleans up after herself, keeps to the quote, oh, and does a great job, Gill is your woman.

Ruth Sturkey

Gill did a fantastic job painting our kitchen units and bathroom. A thorough job, great attention to detail and high quality finish. She was also flexible and accommodated our needs really well. I would highly recommend Gill for a great service.

John Issitt

Can’t fault Gill and could not be happier with the work that she carried out. Her prep work is second to none so the quality of finish is exceptional…the rooms look like new. She always turned up on time and worked until late or until the job was done. Always cleared up after herself and charged me exactly what she said she would in her original quote – no hidden extras or fictitious problems along the way. Overall, very pleased and would highly recommend Gill to anyone.
