Scion was a huge success, but I wanted to work more freely, so in 2013 I reverted to freelance status. I was able to continue working alongside a number of clients – Walker Greenbank included – as well as collaborate with Rich at Chairs and Skyscrapers.
Since then, my experience and skill set has allowed me to work with clients across all stages of design development and interior styling – from buying designs, overseeing separations, developing and presenting colour ideas (using mini screens at my wet studio, or AVA/INEDIT colour systems), through to bulk production, location sourcing, tear sheets, styling and art direction, and instructing set build and decoration. I also have experience working on exhibition stand conception and overseeing the build.

The opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of companies and work alongside some great professionals keeps my days interesting. My work is often challenging, but that’s what I love about it… and like my old boss said, a horse called Give Up…

In my spare time I work with Rich on Chairs and Skyscrapers. There is nothing we like more than setting off at 5 am for an antique fair, to rummage for props for a shoot or for Frog and Lock hire… What’s not to like?!
