I am primarily concentrating on the prints & Illustration side of my business, but I simply love designing. When time allows, I fit logo design & marketing projects around building my own business. Downsizing my career has highlighted how passionate I am about the community we live in so I have really enjoyed helping some new & local businesses create better design.

My career background
After many years working as a Creative Director in magazines I decided to 'ditch-the-stess' and return to my illustrative roots. My publishing career saw me launch and redesign many influential UK magazines (Marie Claire, FHM, heat, New Woman, Look & Instyle to name just a few) and win many industry awards.
My last full time role was as the Creative Director of Marie Claire UK. I absolutely loved it, but after 4 years in this high pressure role I took some time out and then took the bold move not to go back.
As an Art Director in media publishing you don’t just design the magazine but act as the main "brand-guardian" of the title, therefore responsible for pretty much anything that carries the logo, from invitations & awards to books & branded products. I therefore have a very wide & varied design capability.
