    About me

    I am a freelance scenic artist based in London. I graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School July 2012 with a PG Diploma in Scenic Art.

    Through the course and the jobs I have done I have aquired the fundemental skills to become a scenic artist including woodgraining and marbling, 3D polystyrene carving, backcloth painting and spray gun painting. After completeing the course I have aquired the stamina and drive to succeed in this area of theatre with a hard working dedecated attitude.
