    About me

    Since graduating from university with a BA [HONS] Costume with Textiles degree I have immersed myself in the production of live performance. I have a variety of experience within the costume industry, having spent a year of my course in industry in order to gain firsthand experience.

    I am a confident supervisor with strong making and alteration skills. Whilst studying I specialised in Printed Textiles which has given me a good knowledge of dyeing and printing fabric manipulation with an eye for colour matching.

    I am a hard working individual and am passionate about what I do. I work well under pressure and within a team. I enjoy a challenge and constantly strive to build on the skills and knowledge I already have.
