About me

Editorial and commercial stylist with over 3 years of professional experience in styling, art direction, studio management and photography. Currently working full-time in a central London studio as Head stylist and Studio Manager. Whilst the majority of my experience has been in Fashion styling, I have always been passionate about art direction and keep this involved by managing shoots with Art directors,Photographers and Designers. My key strengths are excellent communication skills, a strong artistic approach to all tasks and complete confidence to all my work inside and outside my comfort zone. This is all shown through my work on my website, in particular the self driven shoots that have been professionally managed with photographers.
