I am a Theatre Designer having finishing MA Theatre Design from UAL Wimbledon College of Arts with a Distinction in September 2019. I was shortlisted for the Linbury Prize midway through my MA with 2 speculative projects in my portfolio. I was 2/3rds of the way through a trilogy of designs when Covid-19 struck. These were classic text adaptations with a youth theatre company. I find this sort of work very rewarding and I would like to develop my career using my learnt theatrical skills with a pedagogic vocation of social practice and public participation.
I have spent the last 20+ years working in costume mainly as a Costume Supervisor and Wardrobe Master. I have worked on a wide variety of productions including in 2012 when I was the Wardrobe Supervisor for the Opening and Closing of the Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies in London.
I have been diversifying during the pandemic by teaching on the BA Costume Design for Film and TV at Falmouth University whilst studying for a PGCert in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education at the University of London.
