Praise for Havering College designers

Up-and-coming artists from Havering College of Further and Higher Education received the ultimate accolade from one of the top interior designers in the world.

Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, a multiple award winning designer with A-list celebrity clients, has praised the talents of four students on the BA Fine Arts degree course. Los Angeles-based Bullard visited the college in Hornchurch, Essex, as part of a filming project.

He toured the college’s £6 million centre dedicated to the study of the creative arts and looked at the work of students on the BA Fine Arts degree course.

He said: “It is a joy to come to Havering College and see all this great creative talent.

“There is a fantastic style of work here. You can see that everyone has a great painterly essence. You can see they have studied the classics to move forwards.”

Painting and decorating students Sam Lucas (19), from Chigwell, Glenn Cooper (18), from South Ockendon and Brentwood resident Christian Davy (24), worked alongside a professional team to make Bullard’s creative vision for the apartment a reality.
