About me
I'm an organised and creative interiors stylist with tonnes of styling and art directing experience working on a wide variety of editorial and commercial projects including exhibitions, press shows, advertising campaigns and look books. My background in textiles, retail buying and floristry were vital in giving me the confidence and creative skills needed to work in magazines where I worked in-house as a Style Editor for 7 years. During this time I was managing a team and overseeing the editorial content and design direction of the style department, covering interiors, food and flowers. Since becoming freelance in 2011, I have had the pleasure of Styling and Art Directing for some of the most recognisable and reputable brands including Harrods, Wedgwood, Quadrille, Royal Doulton, House of Fraser, Royal Albert, House & Garden, Marks & Spencer, Stylist and Marie Claire. I have also styled and appeared on various television programmes for Channel 4 and BBC News. I have a passion for interiors which gives me lots of energy and enthusiasm for every job. I also have excellent planning and organisational skills alongside the ability to negotiate and work to a budget which ensures a smooth production from start to finish. I'm involved in every aspect, from organising photo shoots to sourcing props and locations, commissioning photographers, set builders and models.
