Hello! I’m Maritsa and I am a creative junkie. While studying Business Studies at university I would walk past the art college daily and wonder why I hadn’t ended up in there. Alas, a 10 year career in public relations followed and my creativity was poured into developing brands. I worked closely with international clients, celebrities, agents and journalists. As a result you can expect great communication, customer service and professionalism when working with me.
During this time I still couldn’t quite curb the urge to make something. And so I studied black and white manual photography at Central St Martin’s, I took an evening course in floristry, and later learnt curtain making with experts from Merrick and Day.
Following the birth of my two children I set up Made by Maritsa. I have an absolute passion for fabrics and get a real kick out of turning beautiful cloth into sumptuous soft furnishings. I spend hours pouring over interiors magazines, browsing the fabric shops in Chelsea Harbour and nipping into any fabric and interiors shop I walk past.
My ethos in terms of soft furnishings design is go with what you love, you will be the one living with it every day! With so much choice it can be hard to narrow this down, but that is where I can come in to help!
