Editorial & Media Work

I currently edit This Is Ikon’s blog Play, a place where Ikon’s inspiration, passion and character comes to the fore. Play covers a range of topics: quirky discoveries in type on Fontificate; the best of the world’s exhibitions in On Show; and who knows what on This Is:… As the name suggests, fun is the order of the day. My role is to produce content, write posts, source imagery and to keep the blog up-to-date.

Writing about art is something I cherish. For eight years I contributed to Art Guide Australia as their Canberra correspondent, I’ve reviewed for Artist Profile, Artlook and Muse and wrote pieces for Time Out on the many wonders of Sydney. I recently wrote the foreword for Anna Brown’s book Parting Shots: The Last Nights of the Art House Hotel. And then I have my own blogs, which you’ll find direct links to on News Stand.

I’ve gained a solid grounding of creative experience thanks to various roles in editorial settings. As Ikon’s Studio Manager I gained an understanding of the importance of planning, production and costing. At Muse with a staff of just two, I learned to manage all aspects of running a monthly magazine smoothly and as Editor’s Assistant at Cosmopolitian I kept the office on track.

While undertaking my studies I turned to web design and maintenance. Clients include Knees Up London, Darren Knight Gallery, Cherry Hood, Pauline Plumb, and Cathy Laudenbach.

Get in touch if you need help with your blog or need some writing done.
