The “Why“ of methodical

I have always been a nerd for stationery. The best time of the year for me was not my birthday, or Christmas, it was the week before school started and I got to select my new pens for the school year.

I am a born and raised Londoner and my passion for all things creative started and nurtured early. I would spend entire days lost in the V&A , The Portrait Gallery and The Courtauld and would naturally be drawn to and work with the treasures I could take away from the gift shop.

I have over seven years’ experience in retail buying, working for brands including Fortnum and Mason, so being organised and productive was hugely important. I have bought everything from emerald encrusted fountain pens, Christmas decorations and plush toys (often simultaneously).

I still maintain that the best present I ever bought myself was a vintage label maker for my 27th birthday.
