Ascot: Developed concepts and art directed print ads for Ascot Race Days. Project Diversity: Worked on a diversity brief for the agency, to get more women into advertising.

'Flora and Fauna is a sculptural collaboration with Rebecca Louise Law. Exhibited at The Skovgaard Museum in Denmark, The Chapel at The House of St. Barnabas, Bo Lee Gallery & 100 Columbia Road. After seeing Rebecca’s work I pitched an idea for a collaboration - I thought that my use of bird skins and her use of flowers would work well together - like a danish still life - It was great create something together.

I worked as an artist assistant to Polly Morgan: helping to run her studio, make complex works, package and deliver fragile artworks, liaise with collectors and gallerists and act as front of house at art fairs, selling artworks. I learnt a lot from working for Polly. I found it fascinating how she worked as both an artist, a business woman and as her own brand. When I started working as a self employed artist she became a mentor and a friend.
