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, Jon Lys Turner, @ Fitch RS, then Imagination; 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 Tilbury (Mother to highly successful make up artist Charlotte Tilbury). Returning to London, doors opened and photographers wanted me to work for them – I dived in.
Since the heady days of Ibiza, I became a producer/rep for my own photographic agency Blow Up Management & worked for many other fabulous photographic agencies in London, before moving into ad agency life - I have accumulated over 17 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.
