I’m a freelance styling assistant, based in London, with experience on commercial, editorial and tv shoots.
I have recently taken the leap to be a freelance stylist, after years working within high end interior retail management in some great brands, from Heal’s, to Neptune and most recently Petersham Nurseries.
Within all these roles I was leading teams, visual merchandising, project planning, controlling budgets and all the other bits that come with management! However, my favourite aspect of the roles was always when I was able to roll my sleeves up and be creative.
I have been lucky to be able to lead and establish design teams so my organisational and problem solving skills were called upon, I am known for staying calm and positive in a crisis and finding a creative solution to a problem.
Whilst at Petersham Nurseries I was able to stretch my creativity further than visual merchandising by art directing and styling the creative concept for our internal shoots for social and for lookbooks or editorals. I also worked with the in house florists supporting with floral styling for the restaurants and events.
I have been building up to going freelance for a while using holiday days to book in shoots, until the time finally came when I bit the bullet and took the leap to become freelance full time. I have had the privilege to assist some fantastic stylists already from Hannah Deacon, Kate McPhee, Laura Sawyer, Ali Attenborough and Lucy Gough with brands like Cuisinart, Furniture Village, Kitchen Makers, Garden Trading, Snugsofas, Mattel, as well as experience with editorial shoots for Living Etc and Red magazine.
I am hoping to gain experience and learn as much as I can from each opportunity that comes my way. I would love to hear from you if you require assistance on a shoot, I am hard working and friendly, with a creative eye. I am more than happy to get stuck into any job and will be on hand for as many cuppas are needed.
I’m based in London, but have a car and willing to travel.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my profile, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if I can help you with anything or you are a fellow assistant and would like to collaborate
