Jenny Mills says: "Love for form and composition lies at the very heart of our work. We are artists on a quest to sculpt existing spaces in co-operation with nature. Our buildings are exciting and beautiful. They bring something both of ourselves and our clients into the world. We work in close partnership with our clients, focusing on their needs and stylistic preferences."
Jenny's work has a strong contemporary signature which is not only evident in her work in this genre but is skilfully integrated into both classic and leisure designs to match her client's tastes.
"More than anything Jenny, your work is just so very beautiful. Again and again I had to go back for a second and third look because of something I hadn't seen before." - comment from web site.

"I feel that the trend towards authenticity and handcrafted elements will grow."
