About me
Originally from Sunny Portsmouth, I've recently quit the United Kingdom's rat race and relocated to La Seyne Sur Mer, in south of France, with my lovely husband. A creative soul at heart, I've struggled to keep making art regularly and instead worked at sassy London tech companies in PA / Office Management type roles. So I can say with a little relief, that finally, I've now got some time to work on my creative projects. (Before getting in to Admin work, I graduated from The University of Portsmouth with a BA hons in Fine Art!) I'm now seeking creative projects (side hustle style) but I'm also open to supporting as a PA in a creative company. I would like to link with anyone who is forward thinking, environmentally conscious and kind. My own personal projects are linked to fashion, photography and illustration.
Projects
  • Jill Poole Nature Art - Product styling project for new websiteThis was an ad-hoc project for my mum who makes nature art. I didn't have any lighting or equipment so everything was done organically and without a plan, within a day! The aim of this shoot was to place her products in to a narrative and increase visits to her website shop https://www.jillpoole.com/shop

  • Colour BlocksThis fun project came about when I was working in London but living in Southsea, on the south coast. My office was based in Covent Garden so I was lucky enough to have great photo opportunities at my finger tips practically every day. I decided to start taking photographs of the people I saw on my walk to and from the office, across Waterloo Bridge, or whilst on my lunch breaks but I was always too scared to take a picture of an outfit/look that I liked from the front, and so that's how my "Fa

    Office ManagerFeefo
    Petersfield, United KingdomFull Time
    This was a 'warts and all' office management type role. Here, I was responsible for everything from blocked loos - to event management - to office redesign. It was a great 9 months where I had the opportunity to really lead on projects and develop ideas. The reason for leaving this role was down to a snap decision to move to France to be closer to our family here.
