A mountain horse.

2011 has very much been the year of making One&Other grow.

From the initial chats through to the growth of our team this dream has become an overwhelmingly positive reality.

The amount of creative talent that has shrouded One&Other has led it from strength to strength.

 

So a bit about me, I am of Welsh heritage and grew up in East Yorkshire. I followed my heart to Wales for University  (to study History) and returned to York via 2 years in Madrid.

I love to write, I have done since I was very young and the art of storytelling is my main love. I therefore love to read.

I have worked in fashion, and design my own clothes.

I am an eternal fantasist who obsesses over the pre-Raphaelites, silent film, Charles Dickens and Evelyn Waugh.

I am also a realist, hence One&Other
