With 30 years experience of working in the creative industries - from making the tea to running my own gallery and now making my own work, I have a solid understanding of the ups and downs of finding your way. I have given hundreds of portfolio reviews and face to face tutorials and worked as a mentor within higher education and privately.
As a very experienced art buyer, designer and artist curator I have a finely tuned eye for what can make a successful portfolio of work in both the commercial and fine art world.
One of my strongest skills is to help creatives find their direction and help them see the possibilities for their work. I regularly give surgeries with students, graduates, practising artists/designers and with creatives who are coming back to their practice after a hiatus : whether that’s been raising a family or dedicating time to a full time career for example.
If you are at a point where you want an experienced eye to help you put together a portfolio that will work, then please do get in touch .
