    About me

    I am a comedic/dramatic actor/musician and storyteller. I am a mezzo-soprano singer and trained in dance/physical theatre.

    I got my equity in 1988 and worked as an actor with many companies in T.V., community and educational theatre, touring in dance theatre until the mid 90s

    I took a MA and MPhil in Performing Arts for which I researched Sami (Indigenous Reindeer Herders) Communities in the Arctic.

    I performed as a folk singer at International festivals, venues and clubs in Norway, Finland, Russia and the UK. I was recorded live and interviewed on Norwegian NRK radio and BBC Radio Kent.

    In 2006 I became Artistic Director of Root and Branch Theatre Company exploring folk arts, theatre and Animal Guising- stories from the land-website-www.rootandbranchtheatre.co.uk

    I recently completed the Professional Development Course at London International School of Performing Arts in LeCoq based Physical Theatre (Oct 2011-March 2012).
