    About me

    I am prominently a costume maker, i am particularly interested in historical accuracy for re enactments, theatre, tv and film. I have experience in all areas of costume(design, making, supervising, cutting, wardrobe mistress, wardrobe assistant, costume assistant, on set & theatre dressing) I work quite well under pressure, i recently worked on a Titanic short for the BBC last minute as wardrobe mistress on and off set, responsible for around 80 extras and a few key characters. It was hard work but i loved every minute of it as i gained so much to improve my practice. I also have a strong interest in art, painting and drawing is something i really enjoy. Although i am mainly a costume maker i enjoy doing any role within costume and wardrobe.
