    About me

    Follow Miri's board My work and creations on Pinterest.

    I have been a professional theatre designer, costume designer and supervisor since graduating from Central School of Speech and Drama design course in 2007. Since 2007 I have been the Head of Costume at White Horse Theatre in Germany (seasonal), costume designer and since 2015 set designer as well. White Horse is the world's largest children's eduational touring theatre company with over 400,000 people experiencing our shows every year.

    2015 saw me move to Southwold, Suffolk from my home town of Bristol. I am the Costume Designer and Supervisor at Suffolk Summer Theatre (previously Jill Freud Company) here in Southwold.

    Other work includes 3 years experience as Head of Costume for Enchanted Entertainment which involves supervising the costumes for their Carlisle and Ipswich Pantomimes every Christmas since 2011 and their Easter Panto tour since 2012.
