Derrick Hicks – South East
My name is Derrick (unusual spelling long story!), when I am not working for Larson-Juhl, I have several different interests. I do research focus groups (anything from politics to local issues), and I also do product testing. Again anything from chocolate to cider! When at home, I also enjoy watching Moto G.P (I am a big fan), DIY and gardening. I have two grown up children that still live at home and a cat called Oscar.
Graham Miller - Field Sales Director
I have worked for Larson-Juhl for nearly 30 years. I have lived in Devon for almost the same time, with a very understanding wife and three daughters. They have nearly all left to pursue their own career paths (daughters not the wife). I enjoy swimming - you can find me at the local pool at 6.30am to start the day. I still follow my childhood passion of Speedway, following my home town team “Poole Pirates” and the Individual World Championship. I enjoy helping our local secondary school in training the young men and women for the famous Southwest Ten Tors endurance walk and camping across Dartmoor, which happens every May. The photo is a good weather day on Dartmoor standing on top of Steeperton Tor at a height of 532m not the tallest Tor on Dartmoor, but has great views!!
James Burston – Sales and Marketing Director
I live in the West Country with my wife and daughter. I have a passion for gastronomy and like to experiment with all types of cuisine and wine pairing.
I support Bristol City FC and Bristol Bears rugby club, as well as supporting our local football club, whom my daughter plays for. We have a loyal canine companion called Fizz and two horses call Sam and Foxy. We like nothing more than to escape down to our little French hideaway on the foothills of the Pyrenees when we can.
John Green – East England, Home Counties and Channel Islands.
I have worked for Larson-Juhl since 1999. I have a love of the great outdoors, and try to be active with running and cycling. I enjoy watching sport, and enjoy football and rugby. I also have a passion for music and watch live bands as often as I can.
Katrina Cameron – Internal Sales Operator
I live with my husband and five dogs (Chihuahua crosses). I have a passion for baking and ‘vintage’. My house features 50s/60s decor throughout with all original furniture. I take part in obstacle runs every year to raise money for the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, which is a charity very close to my heart. My hair colour/style is always changing and I love travelling to new places. I volunteer for a local charity feeding the homeless on a Saturday when I have spare time. As a wise and gracious lady once said: “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” Audrey Hepburn.
Orin Forshaw – National Sales Manager
My name is Orin and I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I have two cats - Tumble and Nando (named after the restaurant) and I live with my fiancé. I love to cook as I used to be a chef in a previous life. I would like to say I’ve some amazing hobbies but watching rugby and NFL is about as exciting as it gets. I love to go away and I am always planning my next holiday.
Simon Davies - Head of National Accounts
My name is Simon Davies and I have worked at Larson-juhl since 1999. My current role is split between managing key accounts in the UK.

Tracey Masters – Customer Service Manager
I have worked at Larson-Juhl for a wonderful twenty plus years. I currently manage the UK and international team customer service and credit control.
I share my home with a menagerie of feathered and furry friends and not forgetting my husband Stewart who is always the last one in the household to be fed!
We own two cats, Missy & Bella, a dog called Bailey, a variety of chickens, two horses named Guinness and Alfie and a cheeky miniature Shetland called Minnie Mouse.
My true passion is riding my horses around our local countryside at the weekends and any spare time I have left I love entertaining and socialising with friends and family.
Barry McLean- Scotland and Cumbria
I have recently joined the Larson-Juhl family and look forward to learning more about this creative industry. I enjoy allowing my imagination to run wild and have a few passions including travel, acting, comedy, drawing and interior design. I have been lucky enough to experience some great little adventures such as sky diving, bungee jumping and scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef and hope to experience many more in the future. I did also used to be Goofy at Disneyland but that’s a story for another time!

I’ve a keen appreciation for anything on wheels and recently bought a car to restore, which hopefully will be a future classic.
