A Bit About Me

I am an experienced and award-winning graphic designer, marketing consultant and social media manager with a 1st class BA (Hons) degree from the University of Suffolk.

After working as a graphic designer at Colchester Zoo, my husband and I moved to the south of France in 2018 where I began working as a successful freelancer.

I have worked for many years with Deaf and Deafblind people, and am currently helping a Deafblind client write his autobiography.

I'm also a singer and musician, and have performed many times at large events and intimate venues.

“You have produced work with creativity that is truly

outstanding in all criteria. Your work demonstrates that you

have interrogated reason, questioned convention, looked at

the past and stretched yourself in all intellectual and technical

contexts. My feedback is swift and nothing but glowing.”

Russell Walker, UCS Tutor
