Alex's degree covered set and costume design, along with lighting and sound design, technical drawing, model making, costume illustration and life drawing, script analysis and collaborative performance. Photoshop and basic CAD.

    Since leaving college Alex has worked as a costume and set designer, costume supervisor, stylist, production designer, costume maker, milliner, prop maker, set decorator and painter. She has worked mainly in theatre and on some short films, 2 award-winning and on one low-budget feature, winning a Best Film at Reelheart in Canada.

    Additional Information

    Recently completed a Costume Standby Master Course at Creative Media Skills 2020.

    Alex would really love to find further work as a stylist, or in film/TV costume and would be happy to take a junior or entry-level position on a larger scale professional film or TV production.
