Graduating from Central Saint Martins in Theatre Design for Performance in 2008 I have worked non-stop as a set and costume designer. Nominated by the Off-West Awards for Set and Costume, working Nationally and Internationally and after 10 years as associate designer with Fourth Monkey Drama School (creating 75 shows in rep seasons) I am proud to have developed a body of work that has brought joy on and off stage.
Whilst maintaining long standing relationships with directors and talented production companies across London such as Backyard Cinema, Aria Entertainment, Les Enfants Terribles, Sky Kids and Amazon, I enjoy seeking new connections with companies to keep my work fresh and exciting.
My design work spans over, opera, plays, musicals, dance, film & television and immersive live events. With each project I find new ways to process concepts and interact with differing materials so new methods of approach are discovered keeping each design vital and instinctive, so the work is always relevant to the project being discovered.
As well as being a sympathetic collaborator, I am hands on with the realisation of my design work. Whilst conceptualising and model-making are key to designing, my skills in costume-making, scenic painting, and construction strengthen my communication when developing the design, this ensures that projects do not lose the integrity of the original rendering, whatever the challenge I am ready .
