I’ve only been illustrating for four years, and for nearly all of that time I’ve been with Bright. I came from an art background, however my change in career direction was still daunting, but Bright have been there the whole way, holding my hand and answering my numerous questions. Together we’ve developed my portfolio, but they don’t let you get too complacent and are always encouraging you to produce new work. They’re straight-talking and tell you exactly what they think (which you might not necessarily want to hear!) but which is so important.

Four years down the line I’ve changed my lifestyle completely, moving from London to Devon. Whatever happens Bright have always been there, with Vicki even popping down to Exeter to check all was well! Last year my husband and I had a gorgeous baby boy, Bright were so supportive. Despite being in the middle of a job when my little chap made an early appearance, they liaised with the client, the project got completed and I never felt under any pressure.

I think the girls and boys at Bright are a fab bunch and they’ve helped me realize my dream, which isn’t a dream anymore but a new and really exciting career!
