I am a designer first and foremost, but passionate about all kinds of creative arts. I launched captiv8design in January 2002 after giving birth to my first son. Having worked in the hustle and bustle of London I decided I wanted to work for myself with local businesses and small start-ups. I am committed to providing a quality service to all of my clients at affordable and competitive rates. I like to work alongside my clients, making sure they are involved at every stage of a design. This ensures they receive a quality end-product that meets their original vision and is produced to the highest possible standards.

Over the years 2 more children came along and working as a freelance designer fitted in perfectly with family life. But freelancing from home can be lonely – i missed the buzz of working in a team environment. So, for the past few years i have also been working at Waddesdon CofE school as Creative Technician for the Art Department. I love being able to use my design experience to help support the teachers and the students studying Art, Photography and Graphic Design. This complements perfectly my freelance design and web hosting business.


I enjoyed the freedom to explore and create during an Arts Foundation course at High Wycombe College and then went on to gain a BA(Hons) in Design and Media Management at Thames Valley University.

I gained essential commercial experience, in many areas of design, whilst working for Deloitte Consulting, HSBC Investment Bank and Planet Presentations. These employers gave me the opportunity to work on briefs for large companies such as Vodafone, Barclays, Zeneca and Glaxo-Wellcome.  Whilst freelancing i have been working for businesses local to Aylesbury Vale, including: Aylesbury Homeless Action Group, More+ Cafe, MediPulse Training, Wentworth Estate Agents, Lead Academy, Dance Cupboard, Guitar In Schools, Rainbow Pre-School, Teacup Pictures and Aylesbury Youth Action.
