Aliya is a BBC trained broadcast journalist having worked on both radio and television for 10 years. She finally succumbed to her passion for the decorative arts and undertook an intensive 2-year certification course in interior decorative techniques and design from London's City & Guilds Institute in U.K.

Aliya is Treasurer of the Mid-Atlantic Faux and Decorative Artisans Chapter of the PDCA. She has worked as a decorative artist in U.K. and now runs her own business in New Jersey, working mostly with interior designers in the area and Manhattan.

Aliya's patient and calm teaching style help to create a positive and productive learning environment for both the home owner and the professional alike.

She is happy to help and students during the class with advise on projects they maybe currently working on at home and/or the job site.
