    About me

    I approach my work with an enthusiastic, positive attitude and have an excellent eye for detail. I have had responsibility for designing and making; sets, costumes, props, puppets. My skills include sculpting, painting and model making at all scales, besides managing budgets and meeting tight deadlines.

    My ambition is to continue to bring imaginative ideas into existence. I am motivated by the diverse challenges presented by making costumes, props and puppets and I relish working in a creative environment.
