    About me

    I am a freelance props and scenic specialist. I have experience in film/television, theatre, photoshoots, attractions, events and festivals. This work has included prop making, prop dressing/styling, standby, scenic painting, maintenance and replenishment and sourcing and buying. These areas of expertise have included molding/casting, poly carving, painting effects, action props, fake food, sanding/ filling and priming, using jesmonite and assisting with applying fibreglassing and spraying. I also have IT Knowledge in Microsoft programmes, Adobe Illustration and 2d Design (laser cutting programme).

    My knowledge in making also means if needed to work on set, I would be able dress the set and manage the props. I can also help with styling when filming on location. I have also been self employed for 3 years across the arts in which sourcing, buying and working on production has been an essential part of my role. Consequently, I have acquired a list of good working relationships and knowledge of props houses to source props, decor and materials as needed. Therefore, I can provide on set work as well as workshop if you needed me to.
