    Additional Information

    I have worked with many innovative Directors and Practitioners. Including Tony Dow, Jonathan Holloway, Uta Hagen, Chris Lovett, Mo Heard, Liz Goulding, Bruce Wall and Carla Kingham.

    I believe in the old style of repertory, training and professional commitment and my Theatre Company gives young actors the opportunity to experience an art form that is unfortunately dying: we tour ten plays simultaneously.

    About me

    Currently touring my one-woman show TIMELINE all over the Country. The play covers history from Stone Age to Present Day and I portray over 25 different characters.

    I am a versatile, character actress with many years of experience in theatre, film and TV. I started my own professional rep TIE Company; Aesop's Touring Theatre Company, in March 1999. I have a wide range of acting and vocal skills performing comedy, improvisation, Shakespeare and other equally demanding roles. I can also be found on Mandy Voices and my Spotlight View Pin **contact removed**
