"We believe in producing exceptional designs,
that must work equally in both creativity and function"
Born and bread in Africa, having lived and traveled to various parts of the world I decided to settle in WA. After graduating with a Diploma of Building Design and Construction, I went on to work for a reputable building company in Perth, before venturing out to start Howes & Homes. As the owner of Howes and Homes my role is diverse, but my love lies in the design work.
My interest for design, building and architecture started at a very young age. As a child I would build 'tiny' houses from sticks and leaves. Coming from a family of four competitive brothers with varying art abilities I spent much of my childhood drawing; with the motivation of becoming better than my older brothers. This led to my mother covering our home in drawings by her sons.
When I’m not working on ways to improve the business you'll find me enjoying the beach with my two young boys and wife, or trying my hand at renovating our Falcon Bay home.
After moving from Zimbabwe to Australia as a young child I have spent most of my life in Mandurah. When I clock off from my full time gig as mum to two toddlers, I clock on as jack of all trades at Howes and Homes.
The many hats I wear include Admin, marketing, PA and cheerleader (most importantly). As Greg began Howes and Homes shortly after we got married it has very much been a massive part of our lives, and something we are both passionate about.
On the rare occasion I have not got a child hanging to my leg, a clip board in my hand or a lap top in-front of me, I enjoy finding my zen with a bit of yoga, or sipping on a glass of red.
Having a desire to travel around the world to explore, and learn from different countries and cultures, I decided Perth was the place to be. Attracted by the visual beauty, I moved to WA to study a Diploma of Building and Construction where I felt there was the perfect mix of creativity and building.
Since arriving in Perth, I have worked for some of Perth's leading building companies and architects, gaining experience in boutique residential design. I joined the team at H&H early 2018, and am involved in design and documentation.
Having an immense love and passion for art of all kinds, (annnd my morning cup of coffee!) when I'm not designing, I spends most of my time singing and dancing with my son, daughter and husband, as well as renovating our home. I enjoy walking on the grass with no shoes (which includes having my lunch break outside shoeless), painting and cuddling my two beagles are also my favourite things to do.
Originally from South Africa, I moved to Australia with my family in 2007. From an early age, I have always been drawn to Architecture and had a passion for all things design.
I studied and graduated from Curtin University, holding a qualification in Interior Architecture (Honours), and have worked for some of Perth's leading interior design firms, gaining experience in both commercial and residential design. I joined the team at H&H in 2019, and am involved in everything from design and documentation, through to social media and marketing.
When I'm not at the office, you will find me baking and cooking in the kitchen, spending time with my husband and family, or in my home-studio busily working away at one of my latest creative ideas.
