Growing up in South London I was surrounded by vibrant culture mixes and clashes and everyday life from walking to school to playing out offered up an international palette of music, tastes and styles.My Dad loved to drive and some of my best childhood memories were our weekly Sunday car rides on his day off to just cruise and take in the city scape or the long family car journeys we’d do every summer across Europe into Turkey soundtracked by the Gypsy Kings and Turkish pop music playing full volume.The street characters and scenes I’d see gazing out the car window felt like watching the most exciting shows and the real life frames that would unfold as we drove along captured my imagination.
That feeling of wonder at watching the world has never left me and taken me into a creative career in theatre, styling and photography and all over the world, teaching me to use my eyes in different ways and stay ever wide eyed and curious to the beauty and stories that surround and connect us.
I am a mother, a picture taker, an explorer. A lover of style and photography, food and people, simple pleasures and great adventures.
