Jeanne was born in London, arriving by ship on the shores of Fremantle at the age of 10 – the last of the ‘ten pound poms’. She’s well-travelled and has spent over half her life in Australia and the rest in UK. Jeanne started out studying Maths at Uni, but ended up gravitating towards Marketing (both begin with the letter ‘M’). She’s embarked on other weird stuff too like being international ballroom dancer and stranger still… being in a girl band. What, I hear you ask, is she doing here at Siren?
Following a successful 20 year career in the financial services industry in the UK and Australia, Jeanne left her post as Operations Mgr, Risk – Investment Platforms at MLC to take up the position of GM at Siren Design Australia in 2012, joining at a period of intense growth. She’s responsible for facilitating client strategic briefing workshops, Siren’s internal policies and procedures, people & culture framework/processes and finance. Jeanne says that, at Siren, no two days are the same.
“I love the Siren team – they’ve come from near and far to form the most talented and loveliest crew of people I’ve ever known. Together we set sail on the high seas of adventure on our Siren ship – yoho me hearties … y oho!”
Siren Design has certainly brought out the creative side of Kerry, who has worked mainly in the financial and professional services sectors previously in both Europe and Sydney. Her work experience spans over twenty years and she’s worked for some of the best but never on the creative side …
London born and bred, she readily admits she’s finally found her favourite job working as EA to Mia Feasey and taking on a ‘Mother Hen’ role to the other Sirens (aka Sydney Office Manager)… She loves being amongst the ‘finishes, fixtures and fittings’ and embraces (in awe of) the creative ‘flow’ that is the Siren Studio…
Kerry describes herself as organised but not obsessed, mature but heaps of fun and generally happy and energetic!!
Her other loves (apart from her role at Siren) include her family, staying fit (running, walking the beach, netball, kickboxing to name but a few) but she’s equally happy skimming interior design magazines whilst indulging in her love of Tuna!!!

Venesa holds an Advanced Diploma of Interior Design and Interior Decoration, from Enmore Design Centre. She has 12 and a half years of experience and is a highly creative designer that loves translating a client’s wish into a reality – kind of like a genie, actually.
V’s design style can be described as clean & simple with a hint of the unexpected. She loves adding an element of surprise and enjoys playing with scale and materials. She also loves drafting & detailing by hand and feels it’s a lost art that designers need to reclaim. She enjoys researching innovative ways to use materials & furniture and to create joinery, and hopes to create spaces that inspire people to stop and think for a moment. She’s also a lighting junkie and has been heard to proclaim “without good lighting the interior is nothing”
When she’s not thinking up amazing designs, V indulges in fine arts, cooking for friends, and dancing in the dark to minimal electro and disco – “silent disco”.
After graduating high school, Julie had the choice of pursuing art curation or visual communication studies. She chose Visual Communication for 2 years (a mixture of graphic design, photography, typography & illustration) before realising she had a strong interest in Interior Design.
After deciding to follow this passion, Julie completed an Advanced Diploma in Interior Design & Styling and was quickly snatched up by a retail & hospitality design studio for 2 years before joining Siren. Since then she has gone from strength to strength and is now a Design Manager at Siren, across the team with a particular focus on maintaining high standards, process, delivery and training.
At first glance, Julie’s quiet nature may come off as shy but don’t be fooled! She used to ride a skate board, is a quick thinker and well known for her sharp wit. Her eye for detail and capability to think outside the box allows her to present a well-thought out and cohesive design. Julie’s ‘hands on’ approach to design means she’s always fully immersed in every project – preferring to be on site and working directly alongside her clients and colleagues.
Julie likes to spend her spare time being a total sloth – when she’s not lounging around or relaxing at the beach, she exercises her huge passion for cooking, which she credits inheriting from her Chinese-chef father. She loves cooking and eating western food & is a self-proclaimed Queen of the BBQ! At Siren Julie is famous for her ‘man-style lunches’ basically large meal consisting of meat and carbs… her favourite carbohydrates are bread and the potato is King.
