About me

Hello, I'm Blair

I'm a Production Designer & Art Director for Exhibitions, Film, Commercials, Music Videos, Live Events and Editorials. You can come to me with an idea and I'll work with you to develop the creative.

I could create a treatment for you, make a bespoke prop or produce the content as a whole.

My vision is a play of context and colour, a mix of handcrafted and experimental use of materials, contemporary and multicultural, unfolding a detailed narrative.

I run an intensive mentoring program to help advance young women exploring their creative talents to use within the commercial industry.

I continue to paint as a fine artist and muralist as well as creating installations for interior design and retail display. I have designed scenic treatments for theme parks, large restaurants and nightclubs in America as well as numerous private residences and commercial spaces.

Really into high concept briefs! The more elaborate and crazy the better!
