Who was born and raised in South London, where she also founded her design practice.

Rowena holds an MA from the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she studied 19th century European painting and sculpture.
Palefire is a small London-based design studio that creates playful decorative objects for the home.
Combining a decidedly maximalist approach with thoughtful and sustainable practices, Palefire brings an exuberant artistic sensibility to home design. Their emphasis on the play of colour and painterly surfaces is inspired by historic design movements such as Arts & Crafts and the Omega workshops.
