About me

I am an enthusiastic writer and content marketer with a passion for the international art market and the creative industries. I also have an unconditional love for food. I was previously the content manager at Larry’s List, the leading art market knowledge company providing data, research and access to contemporary art collectors, and a contributor and assistant editor at TheArtGorgeous.com. Before that, I was a freelance contributor and event organiser at Art Radar Asia.
