WELCOME TO THE BRIGHTSIDE
Graduating from a BA (Hons) in Fashion at Kingston University, UK, 2001, Miss Brightside moved to Treviso, Italy, where she worked as a designer at United Colours of Benetton. In 2002 she relocated to Sydney, Australia for 10 years; freelancing for fashion designers such as Akira Isogawa.
In 2011 Miss Brightside embarked into the art scene, screen printing alternative fairytale narratives onto glass. In 2012 the aMBUSH gallery, Sydney, hosted her first of many solo exhibitions where a thousand people attended opening night. The preview night was an extravaganza with dwarves dressed as cupids, three bands, two pole dancers, a contortionist, female bartenders dressed as green fairies and topless male waiters who handed out love potions made from absinthe cocktails mixed in a cauldron.
This successful exhibition inspired Miss Brightside's thirst for further education. She untertook her MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martin (CSM), London, graduating June 2014.
After graduation Miss Brightside sort advice from a White Witch to where she would live happily-ever-after. She has now been fulfilling that prophecy since 2015 in Hollywood, LA, USA, where she lives in a magical cupboard and works as a visual artist.
