    Trailer link: youtu.be/cMDuaU-XyW4

    I trained for three years at The Guildhall School of Musica & Drama, and the Post Graduate course in voice at Central (now the MA in Voice). I have been in the business for over thirty years, and have appeared in the West End, on Number One Tours, Musical Theatre, TV, Film, commercials and corporate training. Recent film work includes feature, The Last House on Cemetery Lane, Love of Words for British Filmmakers' Alliance, the multi award-winning Swoosh! Evil & Wicked Spirits, Metronome, A Week In the Day of Elspeth Palmer and Goodnight Gigi. I'm also featured in the latest Skype photographic campaign, the Virgin Atlantic American ads and Salonpas for several European markets. 2017 finished with a flourish of Restoration Comedy that saw me appearing as Lady Fanciful in Vanbrugh's The Provoked Wife at the magnificant Kings Weston House, designed by the playwright himself. 2018 has kicked off with a fun comedy TV pilot - Trousers for Turtle Canyon Media. I was awarded Best Supporting Actress at the Claw Festival for short film Skin directed by Deloris Collins with Roger Pearce (DOP)
