    About me

    I love it all. Challenging spaces to create a visual world, by set, scenic painting, prop making or luxurious fabrics, colour and texture galore! But costume is my true love! If you say you don't like dressing up, I don't believe you!

    I have since enjoyed working with youth theatres and have a special love for designing for children, and young people within theatre... I find it so rewarding watching children's faces light up, whether it be because of a set that folds out unto itself or a fantastical costume waiting to be worn with adoration... Mind you, it's just as fun seeing the excitement beam across the grown up's faces too, as there is still a child in every adult waiting to burst out!

    After receiving the "Painters, Glaziers, Embroiders & Stationers Award" from Freeman & Guilds of the City of Chester, for higher than average Standard of Proficiency in the Diploma in Art foundation and also gaining a Distinction in Art Foundation at the West Cheshire Collage, I was offered a place to study a BA (Hons) in Theatre, Performance Design and Technology at Liverpool institute For Performing Arts (LIPA). I graduated in the summer of 2006.

    I work well in a team and also solo, i am very focused and dedicated when need be!
