Growing up on the Isle of Man, Lynsey did not know the job of Prop Stylist existed. She found her niche when she took a summer job at the BBC assisting stylists and cleaning out prop cupboards and quickly moved up the ranks. It was fate. As a child, she was enchanted with any object that sparkled. Lynsey fell so in love with a friend's glittering toy ring that she had to have it. She popped it in her mouth, only to get it stuck between her front teeth, requiring a dentist to have it removed! Today, Lynsey has honed her talents on three continents, having left London for Australia, where she worked on interiors and dabbled in lifestyle and food (Donna Hay). Her pursuit of beautiful images then brought her to New York, where she has worked on Pottery Barn Teen catalogs, Applebee's Ads, More Magazine, and Whole Foods.
Question and Answer with Lynsey Fryers:
Prized Possession: Grandma's gold charm bracelet. I loved playing with the bracelet on her wrist when I was younger, and now it has been passed on to me. I hope my children/grandchildren will enjoying playing with it too.
Motto: Those who don't dare to jump, never learn how to fly.
Hobby: Trawling through flea markets, auction houses, second hand junk shops, feasting my eyes on all the used, well worn, pre-loved pieces and seeing if I can reinvent them, or give them a new lease of life in a new setting.
