Q. What are your day to day job roles at Silk Group?

Overseeing all artwork that comes through the studio, liaising with production and clients.


Q. What do you enjoy most about working for Silk Group?

The variety of work I guess. I can be working on a full colour brochure one day and a full exhibition stand the next.


Q. What do you do in your spare time?

When I have some free time I really enjoy getting out in the garden and I can sometimes be seen out and about on my classic Lambretta scooter.


Q. What is your favourite film?

That's a tough one but Quadrophenia had a big effect on me as a kid and I still love it now, even though I know it word for word!


Q. What music do you listen to?

I have a huge music collection from Bowie to The Who and everything in between. Just got Gaz Coombes' latest album on pink vinyl for my birthday.


Did you know...

I worked in print for around 10 years before giving up work completely to do a full time degree in graphic design. Can't believe that was nearly 20 years ago!


Q. #1 item on your bucket list (what do you want to do)?

To go back to America with my children. Went several times with my other half many years ago but would love to go back with the kids.
