Services & Who I am
Artist Representative, Curator, Visiting Lecturer
Having originally trained in Printed Textiles, I spent over 10 years working as an art buyer and commissioner of art and illustration at the Guardian newspaper, allowing me the pleasure of working with some of the World’s finest Illustrators, Designers and Art Directors. Alongside this I worked on occasional freelance curating projects and as an illustration agent, representing for CIA to the Spanish market.
Since 2009 I have been showcasing collections of limited edition prints by Artists and Designers alongside my practice as a visiting lecturer to Art colleges. I initially started A Little bit of Art as a fun, colourful online gallery to sell prints, which continues to be a success – with more work being commissioned exclusively to the gallery.
During 2012 I have begun to develop GAS Art Agency and Gallery – promoting the work of Applied Artists, Designers and Artists including work in glass, pewter and slate alongside limited edition prints and original artworks.
Throughout my career I have worked hard at developing strong and positive working relationships with Artists, Illustrators, Designers, Educators, Agents and other creative practitioners and now work hard on the behalf of the talent I represent to build strong relationships with collectors, dealers and other Art & Design professionals.
