When I left university I wanted to be a picture editor and promptly got work
experience at IPC assisting a magazine Practicals Editor … practical is my
middle name … I love nothing more than painting, gluing, stitching, fixing
things … My first job for the magazine was to make my version of the
readers DIY Christmas decorations … Hilarious !!! I quickly got promoted
to Practicals Editor (overseeing fashion / beauty and shopping) and started
to organise and art direct fashion and cover shoots and realised that this
was where my passion lay.
I stayed at IPC for 7 years – travelled the world … Back in the day when
there were budgets for fabulous fashion trips!!
I then took a leap of faith and went freelance, I haven’t looked back since!
Now I work on womens and kids fashion. Clients include Mothercare,
C&A, Peacocks, Brand Alley, Paul Costello, Matalan, Marks & Spencer and John
