I have been involved in interior textiles, in one way or another, all my working life.  After graduating in printed textiles, my first job was as a colourist for a major british interior fabrics company.  Four years later I was winging my way to New York, to open and manage a colouring and design studio, based in Manhattan and Connecticut, working for an Australian textile converter, alongside licencees, producing bedding, wallcoverings, etc.  This job took me to print mills across the States, Turkey, and back to the UK, to oversee print production.

On my return to the UK, I set up home in the East Midlands, working as a freelance textiles consultant, heavily involved in the developing and production of print ranges for major interior brands.  During this time I began to work more and more on art direction & styling jobs, predominantly with those same brands, often going straight from creative development of the product, through to art direction and styling of the range.  I took a break from freelancing to take up the position of Creative Brand Manager of the Walker Greenbank brand Scion, and had a key role in its development, from conception, design and colouration, to art direction and styling.

After 3 years, I returned to freelancing, and although still involved in development of ranges for several companies, I now spend more time on art direction and styling.  Clients include: Harlequin, Morris & Co, Scion, Sanderson, Zoffany, Blinds2Go, Hypnos Contract Beds, The Design Archives, Sekers, August Berg, Brewers, John Lewis, Alpha Designs Upholstery, Bedeck, Brink & Campman, Axminster, and Starbucks.

Leicester and Hastings based, I am happy to travel, and am experienced with working alongside the client to fulfil a brief, from initial budget through to resource management, including location sourcing, set build, make-up, photography & logistics.

Think that’s it for now…if you need any more information, please get in touch!
