ABOUT ME

Cotswolds | Cardiff | London

Growing up I loved to dance, having several opportunities to perform at my local arts centre. In school I participated in music concerts as a singer and a clarinettist, though Art was always my favourite subject. I loved to get stuck into each project experimenting in different mediums from paper maché to painting to photography.​

In 2017, I graduated from the BA (Hons) Design for Performance course at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The 3 years gave me a hands-on experience in design and making, set and costumes for stage and performance.


I enjoy being involved in the practical application of designing, making and rendering, whether working in a model box or sewing garments.

Intrigued by the past, people and places, I channel my curiosity into the design process where every stage of rendering provides a different challenge. It is exciting to see a production unfold, from page to stage.

I have always been creative and fascinated by live performance; I feel lucky to have found a career path that combines both.

FURTHER EMPLOYMENT

Working in Wardrobe has provided exposure to the inner workings of different live productions.  This experience is invaluable for my design process and understanding how scenic, prop and costume elements function in a production.
