Strategist, Creator, Communicator, Coach

I have been working in the arts and heritage sectors for over 20 years, driven by my love for all things creative and performance, and by my passionate belief that the arts should be enjoyed by as many people as possible.

Since starting my journey as creative communicator, I have been working with a range of individual artists and organisations, large, mid and small scale. I specialise in devising and developing marketing and audience development strategies, in dance marketing and in dramaturgy and public engagement.

More recently, I have added coaching to my range of services because I know from personal experience what a powerful tool it can be in helping people achieve their goals.

I'm based in the beautiful South West of England, but I am flexible and happy to work with clients across the UK and overseas.

Connecting Arts With Audiences

Effective marketing and audience development begins with strategy. With a look at who your current audiences are and/or which new audiences you would like to reach, and with a considered plan of actions to achieve your targets within your capacity and budget.

Whether performance venue or company, individual artist, museum or heritage attraction, I can help you connect with your audiences online and offline, by creating or developing your marketing and audience development strategies, and by finding creative campaign solutions.



There are many moments in our personal and professional lives where coaching can help us reflect, explore new (creative) directions and re-focus. It is an empowering way of problem solving because it is based on trusting that we already know the answers and solutions that work for us.

I am an Accredited Relational Dynamics 1st Coach. Find out more about my coaching services here or email me to arrange an exploratory chat.

... and finally: Jewellery Design

Being surrounded by creatives and performers feeds the artist and jewellery maker in me. Other sources of inspiration are living by the beautiful Dorset coast and drawing from the distant past of an archaeology degree that introduced me to an abundance of styles, techniques and craftsmanship.

My style is contemporary and I work mainly in silver. I like to create one-of-a-kind pieces that tell a story and complement the wearer's style and personality.
