Getting to know Olivia-Ann
What inspired you to become a lighting and interior designer?
Inspiration is for me a mixture of ambience and situations. I was brought up with a big affluence in the lighting industry due to my upbringing and family business. As I grew older I started interesting myself in the science behind the lamps and light fixtures wanting to know always more. On the other hand I am a very artistic person and love detail, the atmosphere and its quality that I surround myself in is very important and the love for interiors, antique furniture and the history behind are for me an obvious general knowledge we should all know about.
Where did you pursue your studies?
I studied lighting design in University College London and then furthered my studies at the institute of lighting engineers in Birmingham. After that I went on to continue my studies in interior design at KLC School of design in Chelsea harbour. It was a total of six wonderful years were mainly London itself gives a massive exposure to anyone coming from a small Island like ours.
