I graduated with BA(hons) Theatre Design degree in 2008, where I specialised in costume design. Since graduating I have continued to work in costume design and making. I have worked on a variety of costume design, making and maintenence projects.

I have been working as a dresser West End theatre for the past 4years. I have gained experience working with wardrobe departments, looking after costume maintenance and laundry, as well as working well with actors.

I got the opportunity to move away from theatre last year, when I was able to get work experience on a feature film. I gained a great insight into how the industry works. I really enjoyed the challenges and feel like I am ready to move forward with my career in costume with working in film. I also had the opportunity to do some work on a TV costume drama and would like to try out more TV work in the future.

I enjoy many aspects in costume, especially period costume.
