Jo Elbourne

When Melody and I met initially it was not in the context of consultant and client, but as contemporaries, and I immediately felt, from her understated, intuitive approach and her clear and generous enthusiasm for the work of other creatives, that I would love to enlist her talents if the opportunity arose. Because Melody is a maker herself, as well as a skilled writer and editor, she is perfectly positioned to understand and give voice to a maker's mindset. Melody does not ask the obvious questions and this makes discussing your work with her an interesting and useful exercise in itself. I look forward to working with Melody again as my practice develops and there are (hopefully!) new areas to explore and write about.
