    Additional Skills

    I'm also a qualified sailor and have spent many years on all sizes of boat with a sail and have a particular passion for working on tall ships.

    I am a confident driver and enjoy driving almost anything with an engine from scooters to jeeps to mini-buses and trucks.

    I also have skills in other areas such as dance, piano, horse-riding, cycling and swimming.

    I acquire new skills and adapt to different styles of working very quickly.

    Additional Information

    I have 3 adult daughters and am now fully committed to a career in the arts, primarily acting in any medium - be that theatre performance, TV, radio, film or podcasts. I have worked in these areas in the past and am once again delighted to be experiencing the satisfaction of interpreting and receiving direction in the whole process of bringing a writer’s story to life.

    I have up to date DBS status and Equity membership.

    About me

    I am delighted to have returned to film, tv and theatre acting after interim careers in sales, teaching and special education.

    I've never been type-cast and love to turn my hand to anything.

    I fully commit to any role, from crowd member to playing driving double of lead character in ITV’s ‘Vera’ or from lead character in touring panto to performing Lady Macbeth - I have consistently succeeded in fully satisfying the directors; taking direction and connecting with other characters and text.

    I have returned with passion and enthusiasm to a fully committed career in the arts, primarily acting in any medium - be that theatre, TV, radio or film and am loving my experiences of once again helping to tell a story well.

    Prior to ‘lockdown’ in March 2020, I had just finished filming in the featured role of a BFI Network funded film for Candle & Bell Productions - the sinister and unforgiving Mother in ‘She Lives Alone’.
