About me...

I am a freelance Interior Stylist and Writer with over 15 years experience working for some of the UK's leading interiors magazines. I have been responsible for arranging stunning shoots across a wide spectrum of ideas, styles and designs, together with sourcing and compiling interesting, relevant and informative features. I have styled everything from large room sets for decorating stories, to real homes and beautiful outdoor dining features. I even got a poodle to pose on a pouffe! As well as the big stuff I love creating the perfect detail shot, whether it's a gorgeous arrangment of seasonal flowers or the perfect pile of beautifully wrapped Christmas presents.

The practical bit

As well as coming up with imaginative and inspiring shoot ideas and sourcing all the right props I also have a wealth of experience booking locations and studios, commissioning photographers, set builders and seamstresses... and doing all of this within budget. I regularly organise shoots within the UK and have also produced and styled shoots both in France and Cape Town. I love all the challenges that working on location brings. 

Background

I come from a very visual background having studied Textile Art at Winchester School of Art. This highly creative degree course has definitely helped me in my work as a stylist and composing the perfect image. It also equipped me with many practical skills that are now invaluable when working on projects for clients.

Feature writing

As well as styling I have many years of experience writing interiors features for magazines and producing and editing supplements on everything from window dressing to trend pieces on new and upcoming designers; in depth storage and clutter clearing features; lighting guides and colour specials.

I was the Style Editor at House Beautiful magazine for seven years and before that headed up Home departments at Good Homes and Woman & Home. Having this experience of working in house means that I know how important it is to get copy that meets the brief, fits the word count and is on deadline. I can put togther informative, inspiring copy, source quotes and advice from industry experts and research the perfect images to illustrate the feature.
