CREATIVE & ART DIRECTOR

ABOUT ME

A highly accomplished and award-winning integrated
Creative and Art Director with 25 years of experience in building
and bringing brands to life within luxury, lifestyle, food and interiors. 

Creating, launching and redesigning commercial concepts for successful audience engagement, including launches and redesigns of renowned magazines such as Country Living, Modern Rustic, Jamie Oliver, M&S and BBC Olive Magazine. 
I bring a purpose and passion to all of my roles, immersing myself with creative enthusiasm to solve complex problems; relishing in detail and execution, I ensure projects are delivered flexibly and resourcefully. Making certain that creativity meets commerciality, I have the ability to digest and translate a market or product both on and offline.
