About me

I am a Creative Art Director and have been working in the fashion industry for over 20 years.

My career began in publishing, where I worked for Hearst Magazines as a Group Art Director. I set up their first art department, where I created bespoke advertising pages and supplements for a variety of leading brand campaigns.

Following my time at Hearst, I moved on to work as a Creative Director for some of the best fashion, beauty and lingerie retail and luxury brands, including ME+EM, Pure Collection and The White Company.

My most recent work has been consulting at The Hut Group, working on digital first beauty accounts. Prior to that I was Creative Lead at VCCP advertising agency working internationally on their fashion lifestyle accounts.

My experience covers large and small scale productions and projects, including brand launches and rebrands. I creatively oversaw a brand refocus for Crew Clothing and Pure Collection, and at The White Company I launched their new skincare range.

One of my most memorable and rewarding campaigns was working on the launch of lingerie brand, Boux Avenue, where I created the face and visual direction, taking the project from my initial concepts and bringing them to life.

This is the way I like to work. I take a 360° approach, creating concepts & mood boards through to art direction of photographic/film shoots, digital content creation and graphic design. I ensure creative is always suitable and effective for both physical and digital brand media.

I have worked on many successful projects, that have taken me all around the world – photoshoots, brand re‑launches, editorial commissions – all of them creatively satisfying and commercially successful.

I am very passionate about what I do and I’d love to help with your next idea, campaign or photoshoot.
