I’ve been working with Design-Nation since we began the transfer to our operation in late 2013 (it happened officially in July 2014).
Essential tools: I couldn’t survive without spreadsheets, paper and pencil.
Inspirational person: So many people inspire me but my real hero is rock poet Patti Smith.
Favourite material/technique: My background is in textiles and I am passionate about weaving. I also seek out contemporary jewellery in unusual materials and love the mystery of handblown glass – like modern alchemy, unknowable to outsiders and completely magical.
My guilty pleasure is Strictly Come Dancing, the only reason I can think of for a TV licence.
The best thing about this job is that I get to work with fascinating creative people and show off their work to the world.
I am most proud of the fact that I manage to juggle a freelance career as an exhibitions curator alongside my “day” job.
