The ‘OM’ sticker on my laptop started our conversation. We talked India and art. He told me he needed a website. I told him I could help him find a designer, write the words, and help out with content. No designing. No coding.

Two weeks later, I’d stripped down a WordPress theme into paulmathieu.net, along with writing the words, editing the images, and learning a lot in the process. Today it is visited by 1,000’s of design fans from around the world every month.

In the years that have followed I’ve assisted with the launches of exhibitions in London, Paris, Provence, and Goa India.

I’ve also overseen the completion, shipment and delivery of precious bespoke commissions, served as liason for international design symposiums, helped refine artistic statements for exhibitions and media, and written product descriptions for an incredible collection of works.

‘PAUL MATHIEU - STILL MOTION’ CHATEAU LA COSTE, PROVENCE

March 16 - May 22 2019

Nestled within a 200+ acre organic vineyard and international art destination, Chateau la Coste (CLC) presents a first-of-its-kind exhibition of works from Paul Mathieu

Combining works from ateliers and collectors around the globe, the show has been received with rave reviews and inspired all who enter the Renzo Piano designed space where it is on show.

I contributed to English language press releases, wrote promotional emails descriptions of works, artists statements and liaised with press, patrons, and the CLC team before, during, and after the launch on March 16th, 2019.

I was delighted to learn my Instagram post from March 20th was re-grammed by the legendary multi grammy and tony award winner Deedee Bridgewater (she’s the inspiration for a Paul Mathieu design) to her 20+K followers.

UDAIPUR HAVELI & ‘JALI’, ELLE DECOR US & INDIA

A short walk from the banks of Lake Pichola in Udaipur, Rajasthan is Paul Mathieu’s beautifully restored 18th century traditional home or Haveli.

Paul’s incredible care and vision brought a derelict space back to vivid life, and has generated a steady stream of coverage in design publications around the world for the last decade. Most recently I liaised with journalists and staff at Elle Decor US, providing information on materials and techniques used in the restoration as well as refining quotes and statements.

In March of 2019 I worked with Paul in crafting an artistic statement for a feature in Elle Decor India on on Indian inspired design with stone carved ‘jali’ as Paul’s chosen motif. I liased with the team in Mumbai and provided editorial and creative support.
