    About me

    I am a costume assistant/maker with a degree in Costume with Performance Design from The Arts University Bournemouth. Most recently I have interned within the renovations department at Angels the Costumiers where I gained experience working on costumes in a professional workroom under pressure. Although my specialism lies within cut and construction I have had various costume experience from theatre to film. I also have an interest in model making and leatherwork; which I have incorporated into my work using various techniques and materials. I am a hard working competent maker and enjoy all the problem solving involved in creating costumes including pattern drafting and various construction techniques. I pride myself on being an efficient worker, constructing to a high level of finish and accuracy alongside productivity. Working on professional and university productions in construction, tech and running wardrobe, developing a broad knowledge of the requirements of costumes and their durability.
