    About me

    I am a Costume / Textiles Designer based in London/Leicestershire. I have a confident personality and a precise eye for detail, a passion for working within a creative team and the initiative to be a quick problem solver and learner. Experience working on a variety of productions including Features Films, TV Series, Music Videos and on the West End. As a result of this, I discovered how these industries had different approaches in the use of Costume and Design.

    I specialize in Dyeing, Print, Fabric Manipulation and Costume Breakdown, with my design work focusing on these elements. I have a strong passion for Textiles and its use within Costume as I feel fabrication is such an important part of the costume process.
