About

A San Francisco born, now anglophile, freelance graphic designer living in London for the past 16 years as well as an artist agent specialising in Copyright and Intellectual Property Law. I have been in the licensing industry for over 13 years having worked at the

V&A Museum, Bridgeman Images, West London Free School and Hansel Henson Law firm. 

My graphic design delivers high impact work for a variety of media including websites, print, exhibition displays, packaging and branding. I represent and advise artists in the creative industries and offer a bespoke consultation service to help with all Licensing, Copyright and Intellectual Property needs. I am currently representing and advising artists in the UK over a number of platforms, inclusive but not limited to, licensing, marketing, art markets, and gallery shows.

I have also worked extensively in market research spanning the financial, educational and cultural arts fields. I have a law degree from BPP University where I specialised in Intellectual Property, Copyright and Media Law. 

I retained my BA HONs at the University of San Francisco in Graphic Design and Fine Art, with a minor in Art History, along with two post graduated degrees from the Courtauld Institute of Art and the University of Manchester: Sotheby's Institute of Art. I also completed my law degree from BPP University.
