“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather, short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?'”

I love lots of colour, West End musicals, being outdoors in the sunshine, browsing Pinterest and craft magazines, Wes Anderson films, anything written by Mark Gatiss, listening to David Bowie, taking photos and organising things into boxes. I prefer rivers to lakes.

I live in Godalming, Surrey, surrounded by trees. I look after my four year old boy. I also do freelance Graphic design projects, including designing logos and WordPress websites. Any spare time, I use making things.

Thanks for reading.

I have worked as a print based Graphic Designer with three different agencies over the last 10 years. Projects include corporate identities, illustrations, posters, leaflets, signage, brochures, reports and programmes. Being part of small teams means I have been involved in the whole design process, from initial meeting through to delivery.

Since taking a career break to look after my children, I have been taking on various freelance design projects, mainly logos and posters. I have also developed my skills in WordPress and have completed a couple of successful websites.

The website is perfect! Love it.

I have always enjoyed making things and have a drawer of “come in handy” craft materials. I very seldom stick with the original plan.

I also tend to get completely carried away organising parties, especially children’s parties.
