In my words

Prior to my current job in the museum world, I worked for over 16 years in magazine publishing. As Editor of The Dolls’ House magazine I wrote a variety of editorial exploring the subject of dolls’ houses and miniatures for adult collectors. I am a specialist in the field; I know their history, how to make and decorate a dolls’ house, and where to source contents. I have written two project books, published by The Guild of Mastercraftsmen.

I was Editor of The Dolls' House magazine from 2000 - August 2014

The Dolls’ House magazine provided a home style magazine for the smallest of houses. I included real sized period inspiration including historic houses, television dramas, and exhibitions at major venues such as the royal palaces and the V&A as well as specialist museums such as The Geoffrey Museum and The Weald & Downland Museum. Discovering artists, such as Jo Figg and Paul Michael Smith, who used miniatures in their work was always a joy.

I used my skills with the camera to provide images to accompany many features, as well as photographing the miniatures themselves.

My photography and layout skills are now used by others. I now design publicity material for Heber Opera. Recently I have been experimenting with new ways to use my large image portfolio. I love to blend existing photographs to make entirely new artworks. It’s taking my creativity in a whole new direction (you’ll find some of my work on Flickr & Instagram).
