Work history


Managing Editor

Used Paper Publishing, London

Feb 2015
  • Mayfair-based contemporary art publisher commissioning original works in multiples across a broad range of media, accompanied with commissioned essays. Artists are invited to approach the conception and production of a portfolio as if making a solo or group exhibition, employing images, objects, sound and film/digital works all within the context of a box file. Edition sizes are informed by the particular medium and all prints are signed and numbered by the artist, signed certificates of authenticity accompany objects, sound and film/digital works. The role of ME for Used Paper combines curatorial and editorial input including selection of artists and commissioned writers, communications, branding, marketing strategy, maintaining website content including image processing, text, external web development and design, online delivery, managing documentation and archiving, head liaison for external collaborators including John Jones Framing as well as accounting including managing sales and purchase ledger and preparing quarterly VAT return. Bridging the financial services industry with current trends in the contemporary art market, I have developed the company’s growth by 60% since starting the post, including participation at Multiplied Art Fair at Christie’s Kensington.
