MEET THE TALENT: THE INTERIOR STYLIST CLAIRE LARRITT-EVANS
With this pretty picture, showing the work of the extra talented Australian stylist Claire Larritt-Evans I would like to introduce you one of the new series that you will find here on “79 ideas“. They will be called “Meet the talent…” and by the title you can guess that I will meet you with talented people and they will answer few questions about their work and life.
Each step I’ve taken in my career has led to me being a stylist. After completing my studies at age 22 I travelled and lived in New York, Vancouver and then spent 2 years living in London. This is where I landed my first full time job working for a large Art Publishing house. When I returned home to Melbourne I worked as an Account Manager in a Design Agency. Working in this creative environment in an account management position, I soon realised that I had a yearning to be creative myself, rather than just manage the creative process.
After working for 2 years in this position I took the bold step and started an online art gallery called One Thousand Words. Working from home I ran a successful business selling artwork online – I was lucky to receive a lot of press coverage in design magazines that I adored, namely Inside Out. It was when I was liaising with stylists lending them my artworks for their shoots that I had ‘lightbulb’ moment, when I thought – “hang on, I’d rather be styling the whole story than just supplying the artwork”.
