STUDIO MANAGER / CREATIVE DIRECTOR
In a life of curious twists and turns – Art, Music, Computers & Art again – Dee returned to the world of design for her daytime career in 2002. She has been gathering her extensive computer knowledge and skills since 1983 where she began as a word processing training instructor. Moving onto bigger and better things, in 1985 she was partner in setting up a very successful computer company of which she was a director and shareholder. With a staff that eventually grew to over 60 people, Dee gained a breadth of experience that covered all areas of the business from finance, through to marketing, strategic direction, and ultimately web and graphic design.
Whilst engaged in the busy IT business she also pursued her passion for music which dominated her life outside the office. She had discovered her improvisational gifts at the keyboard and though not in any sense a public figure, was at the continual beck and call of her friends to give ‘recitals’. In 1993 she formed the group ‘Eleven of Hearts’ and they released their debut album ‘Secret Dreams’ in January 1994.
