Freelance Interior Stylist / Set Design / Creative Direction
A little bit about me …
I’m one of those lucky people who absolutely loves their job. I think I was always destined to be a stylist, from childhood days spent crafting stylish houses for my dolls to school projects re-designing the rooms in a local hotel, I’ve just always dreamed of creating beautiful, inspiring spaces.
With a background in Interior design and after graduating from a photography degree I combined my passions and began my styling career working at Ideal Home magazine. After six years I left the magazine (back in 2009) and I headed off to Sydney, Australia, looking for new challenges and inspiration. It was in Sydney that I launched my career as a freelance stylist. During my time in Australia I was lucky enough to work with some amazing photographers for numerous editorial clients and spend several months covering the Style Director position at Australian House & Garden. Since my return to the UK in 2011 I’ve continued to work with a wide range editorial and commercial clients.
I live in a old Kentish cottage that we’ve slowly been renovating, nestled within beautiful countryside, a short drive from London. I share my home with my husband (a fellow creative) our two young sons and our miniature dachshund Dudley.
What Can I do for you?
I thrive upon the variety of my work. From styling a few pages for seasonal Press Look books to Art Directing and Styling entire brochures. Creating striking shots for billboard campaigns and the sides of buses to beautiful magazine covers and craft features. Whether working for magazines; with big high street names and multi-national companies or helping small independent brands establish their own unique look and feel, I take a huge sense of pride in what I do and tackle each brief with creative flair and an infectious enthusiasm…and I love every second of it!
I can work along side you on all aspects of a shoot. Moodboarding initial concepts; sourcing locations, designing schemes and sets; commisioning setbuilders, seamstress, crafts people, Sourcing props, arranging shoot logistics. Whether taking the creative lead myself or helping to realize the creative concepts of others through my trusted approach, big book of contacts and over 15 years of experience I can help brands build a strong visual portfolio of beautiful and aspirational images.
If you’d like to chat more about how we can work together please do get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.
