Nigel and Marie-Lou Crawley established Crawley Studios in 1984.
My training for mural painting started at the City and Guild Art School, London, culminating in extensive travels in Italy studying the the late Renaissance painters.
My passion for art and colour soon led me to interior design. If it is a slick design or a relaxed traditional style that is required, I love to create something special with the client. I can add a contemporary twist to an old building or a more classic design to a modern space.
My skills also lie in project managing and liaising with the client to get the best solution at a reasonable price. Working with the client gives me so much pleasure and I aim to reflect their style and personality in the designs we choose.
We are happy to work for clients travelling as far afield as the US, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
I run the Restoration Studio at Crawley Studios. I originally trained with Salvatore Titian in London. I specialize in painted and gilded furniture, frames, papier-mache, tole ware, decoupage and lacquer, but like to feel I can tackle most projects!
Over the past 25 years I have developed a clientele of both private and professional clients, including art galleries and many West End antique dealers.
