Having flunked out of art college early (my only regret), I started my creative life off as a PA in the 80’s working for an incredible & inspiring creative director, Jon Lys-Turner, @ Fitch RS, then Imagination; after 8 years of this work, I knew I only wanted to ever be in the creative world.
I moved into managing a graphic design studio working mainly in the music business producing beautiful record sleeves for artists, which was very rock ‘n’ roll!
I went to live in Ibiza for 2 years, ending up working in production on shoots from photography through to feature films, c/o an amazing casting legend on the white Isle, Patsy Dodd (Mother to highly successful make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury). Returning to London, door’s opened and photographers wanted me to work for them – I dived in.
Since the heady days of Ibiza, I went from being a producer/rep for my own photographic agency Blow Up Management, to working for many other fabulous photographic agencies in London, before moving into ad agency life as an art buyer - I have accumulated over 20 years’ experience, both client and agency-side, producing high quality creative production, which led onto my current position, working in-house at TJX Europe – owners of TK Maxx and HomeSense, as Head of Creative Production.
