About me

guatemalagirlsloI love travelling and I love colour.

I am an art director, editor, writer and photographer with a wide range of experience in magazine and book publishing. I have art directed and edited several consumer magazines including the award winning Country Living, of which I was the launch Art Director and later the Editor. After ten years at Country Living I took a post grad course in photography at St Martin’s School of Art and went travelling. In between trips to Borneo, South America, Vietnam, Burma and India, I worked as an editorial consultant to M&S, Dulux Colour, Homebase, English Heritage and Asda magazines before joining Simon & Schuster UK as Editorial Director of Illustrated Books. I am now a freelance editorial and creative consultant, and enjoy illustrating, taking photographs, writing and project-managing food, gardening and lifestyle books and magazines. I’m also a Visiting Lecturer in  Visual Journalism at City University, London.

If you have a project that might need some of my skills then do get in touch. Gardening, food, travel, interior design and crafts are subjects I am passionate about.
