Editor, Writer & Artist
My background is in books and interiors magazines, and I have recently been developing projects for the partwork market in craft, cookery and well-being.
I have worked for some of the UK’s leading interiors magazines in staff roles including: Homes & Gardens (features editor/associate editor), Beautiful Kitchens (editor), Ideal Home (acting deputy editor), Country Homes & Interiors (acting deputy editor), Real Homes (deputy editor) and Inspirations for Your Home (deputy editor). As a freelancer, I have contributed to plenty more.
Some of the bigger projects include creating supplements and stand-alone magazines for LivingEtc, Homes & Gardens and Ideal Home, and I have written features for 25 Beautiful Homes, Country Homes & Interiors, Good Homes, Kitchens Bedrooms Bathrooms, Grand Designs and Declutter Your Life.
I have more than 20 years’ experience developing ideas and commissioning freelancers plus feature writing, copy editing, picture research and directing photo shoots. I have launched mini sites, created branded content, e-mags, newsletters and video.
Creative, clear-thinking, organised and friendly, I am open to all commissions big and small, including those that require a bit of lateral thinking.
PS: Somewhere in the middle of this, I went back to art college too so have added art commissions and teaching workshops to my portfolio.
I’m very happy to create art to order for photoshoots and private clients, and am well-connected to a great pool of talented artists so, if you’re looking for something specific outside my remit, chances are I’ll know someone who can help. Feel free to ask.
