About me
I have 15 years experience in the arts, advertising, fashion and media. I have worked in production, art buying and creative consulting. I bridge the gap between creative and commercial worlds. I have a huge network of artists which I have built up over the years and an in depth understanding of brands. I am perfectly placed advise on arts strategy, artists, negotiate licences and produce projects. Most recently I set up Soho Curious & Co. Based in Central London advising on arts strategy, finding the perfect artist partnerships, for both commissions and collaborations globally.
