About

I am a creative consultant. My speciality fields include creative direction, visual storytelling, copywriting and styling for various platforms (print, online, TV and radio).

I am an avid DIY’er and this passion has brought two (actually three) books to life; Real Easy Décor & DIY (in short REDD) and 50 Upcycling Projects From Trash to Treasure (in Afrikaans 50 Upcycling Projekte Ougoed word Hougoed).

I host workshops, demonstrations and talks about creativity and lifestyle inspired topics.

I offer consultations to clients for home and room make over advice; should you need to bounce some ideas around feel free to contact me.

2013 saw the launch of my first self published book, Real Easy Décor & DIY. REDD (in short) was written and produced by myself and a small team of contributors to bring an inspiring book to life. It is on sale here.

In 2014 for the love of beautiful things (bthings.me) launched as an independent entity where digital and print meets to produce a South African content platform sharing beautiful authentic stories. It is currently slumbering.

2015 brought 50 Upcycling Projects From Trash to Treasure and 50 Upcyling Projekte Ougoed word Hougoed published by Human & Rousseau to light.

ENDORSEMENTS

During 2012 – 2014 I worked closely with the Decorland brand, giving handy tips and DIY & Decor advice in their print advertisements appearing in décor magazines in South Africa.

Decorland is the leading curtain hardware and blind retailer in South Africa. You will find their products at Decorland sections in Game stores countrywide.

Below are a few of the campaign spreads.
