I like computers: always have done but, in spite of my best efforts, CAD has rather escaped me and I am of a generation of designers who are happier with bits of paper and animated descriptions. Therefore I need some young and springy geniuses to take my airy scribbles and transform them into something easily comprehensible by clients and contractors. Step forward Fiona Silk – CAD ninja and Vectorworks elf supreme. Fiona produces great visuals and excellent drawings: she is also very tolerant of me changing my mind endless times.
I also enlisted her help to project manage the garden I designed for Chelsea Flower Show 2017. She was in charge of logistics and nagging. She did it brilliantly.
In short, if you need help then Fiona is a very safe pair of hands.
PS She has a lunatic dog.
My goal was to use Sketchup more effectively and Fiona was brilliant in patiently addressing all my questions and solving my problems. Even more importantly she helped me to focus on the essential aspects and as a result I use Sketchup in a much more efficient way. She also showed me how to use Photoshop and gave me a number of excellent tips. Thanks to Fiona I am a much more confident Sketchup and Photoshop user, Fiona showed me how to produce more striking visuals and I am even saving lots of time!
While learning new CAD skills I also very much enjoyed discussing design ideas with Fiona. Her skill sets are excellent and I am already looking forward to the next tutoring session!
Fiona has a natural talent for teaching, guiding you gently in the right direction without a formulaic approach. This certainly leaves you with a feel good factor, empowering you to attempt the next project on your own!
