Which five words best describe you? Passionate, loyal, meticulous, inspired, driven.
How did you get your career start and what path have you taken since? I trained as a lawyer but my heart was always in the arts and the written word. My first official role in the art world was at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney where I headed up PR and communications. It was a steep learning curve but I loved every minute. After a couple of years I took the plunge and established my own consultancy focused on the arts and have not looked back since.
What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way? Follow your heart and don’t be afraid to do what you love. That will lead you to work hard and with passion, which in turn will translate into success.
What’s your proudest career achievement? I’m particularly proud of [art]iculate’s client list. We have been fortunate to work with some of the most respected names in the arts including the Biennale of Sydney, Carriageworks, Anna Schwartz Gallery, Kaldor Public Art Projects and Art Month to name a few. As a result we have had created some wonderful relationships with hundreds of artists and creative luminaries along the way.
What’s been your best decision? Launching my business. It has been an avenue to work with people and organisations that inspire on a daily basis - which to me doesn’t really qualify as work.
Who inspires you? The incredible women in my family: my mother, godmother and grandmothers.
What are you passionate about? Contemporary art! I am also a strong supporter of Australian creativity across all fields: food, hospitality, design and fashion.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? The Dalai Lama
What dream do you still want to fulfil? I’ve always wanted to stay at Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and am planning to do just that for my next birthday.
