    About me

    I graduated from Liverpool Institute of Preforming Arts in 2009, with a degree in Theatre and Performance design. Within my course I explored many fields of design for performance including, Set, Costume, lighting and props design.

    Throughout my studies I worked on various projects with local theatre and film companies based in Liverpool. My passion quickly grew from set to costumes design, especially for dance.

    From graduating I went on to freelance in London, working primary as a costume designer for Dance.

    I am very interesting in how clothing can make you become a character and also enhance the movement of the body when used for dance.

    I like to draw my inspiration from art, movement and to conceptualise the costumes to give greater meaning and understanding for the audience and the performer wearing them.

    I used my skills for further my career as a Visual and Store design manager for a UK based luxury fashion brand. I have decided to move back in to the costume design field and explore my passion again.
