I love my job as a freelance Stylist and Author, over the past 10 years I’ve worked with some amazing people and brands on lots of exciting projects. I style look books, events, sets, and compile decorating, inspiration, craft, shopping and lifestyle features for magazines and companies. I’ve recently been working with Country Living UK, Country Homes & Interiors, Sony, Dobbies Garden Centre and Wayfair. Each month I have a double-page column in Modern Gardens magazine where I share my styling tips and on trend ideas. I am also the author of eight best-selling Interior / Garden books which have been published in over 8 different languages and are sold Worldwide.
I’m passionate about every job I take on, I give it my all to find the perfect location and props in order to create the best images / events / projects I can. Before and during a photoshoot or styling project I’m highly organised with every angle covered, I’m adaptable and dependable and always creative. I have a great resource of props and if I can’t loan, hire or borrow something needed for a shoot I will call upon my own craft skills and make the items required, in the past this has involved sewing, painting, baking and floristry.
I am the Author of eight best-selling Interior and Garden books, published by Ryland Peters & Small. My books are sold around the world and have been produced in over eight different languages.
I enjoy coming up with the theme of a new book, researching locations, prop souring all the elements, then art directing and styling the shoots. I then write the book’s copy to layout.
