I trained as a set and costume designer under Margaret Harris at Motley Theatre Design Course in London, and Terry Ackland Snow at Film Design International at Pinewood Studios.

I have over 15 years experience in many aspects of set and costume design, and at various film grades including Costume Design, Costume Assistant, Costume Supervisor and runner.

I have recently taken breaks for study and elder care, and am now available for work again.
