A San Francisco born anglophile and freelance graphic designer living in London for the past 16 years. I am also 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 Victoria and Albert 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 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 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 retained my BA HONs at the University of San Francisco in Graphic Design and Fine Art, with a minor in Art History, in 2004. 


Along with two post graduated degrees from the Courtauld Institute of Art and the University of Manchester: Sotheby's Institute of Art in London, I also completed my law degree from BPP University in London, England.
