    About me

    I work as a costume designer, supervisor and maker, and over the past five or so years have worked on a wide variety of productions including site specific, dance, opera, musicals and new writing.

    As a designer, I am interested exploring the boundaries between costume, sculpture and performance art, looking how silhouettes, forms and textures can be exploited to transform the performer.

    As a supervisor, I have worked on a combination of large and small-scale productions, including three seasons of the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre in Chester, and two seasons of The Hightide Festival in Suffolk, along with their corresponding transfers to Edinburgh and London.

    Prior to studying for an MA in costume Design for Performance, I completed London College of Fashion courses in Pattern Cutting, Advanced Pattern Cutting for Eveningwear, and Draping on the Stand.

    Recently made costumes have included a life size teddy bear, a 1940s drag revue, an Indian wedding dress, a fictional men's army uniform, a barbarian horde, and medieval doublets and gowns. And whilst there are themes and connections that repeat, I love the fact that with costume, everything is a new project, and new challenge, with something different to discover every time.
