    About me

    Experienced in backstage organisation, dressing and costume making techniques. I am able to use industrial machines and also have laundry knowledge. I am a graduate from the Costume Design and Making course at Nottingham Trent University, excited by the costume world and performance industry. I have taken part in costume with theatre, dance and character performance and look to moving on to bigger challenges anywhere I can find them! I am a talented seamstress and maker, interested in new and interesting 3D designs and creations. I also have a unique drawing style which I use when designing for any type of performance art. I would love to be involved in any part of a costume team to enjoy working alongside creative minds and learning from others in the process.
