I love all forms of theatre but find myself most drawn to puppetry and devising.
Bringing to life a character has the ability to transcend what's thought possible and evoke the childish part of the audience that can suspend belief to enter our the world.
After studying Theatre Designer at Wimbledon I completed an apprentice in puppetry with Lyndie Wright at the Little Angel, in an Arts Council Supported year long project. I wrote a blog whilst I was training with Lyndie click here to view it;
I'm available for design commissions (puppets, set and costume), puppet making and puppet direction.
I've worked with students from primary school through to university undergraduates and am always happy to help with mentoring and teaching - 1:1 or groups.
I enjoy the unexpected journey that collaborating can take you on and working in theatre continues to excite and challenge me everyday. So please do get in touch to discuss working together.
