About me

Hello, I am a London-based freelance graphic designer and art director from Paris. I love coming up with big ideas, crafting beautiful designs and using my skills to help others. My work covers art direction (still and moving image), branding, editorial design, exhibition design and illustration. Previous work experience includes the National Theatre in-house studio and Pentland Brands where I worked for Kickers, Speedo and Ted Baker. I also run Ladies Wine Design London with Helen Friel, Gloria Bertazzoni, Lisa Goff and Mireia Lopez. We are part of an international community of creative women started by Jessica Walsh in New York, and we organize monthly events including panel discussions, portfolio review sessions and informal chats with inspiring women.
