    About me

    I am a trained dressmaker and have been working in costume and wardrobe within theatre, film and TV for around ten years now. I keep broadening my skill set and on top of my previous qualifications I also just graduated in BA (Hons) Costume Production & Associated Crafts. I am keen to return to a fast-paced theatre environment and am seeking a role which will allow me to gain new insight and skills as well as strengthen my existing ones. I love working backstage and have a positive and organised approach to my work.
