Costume Graphics / Illustration / Concept Design

Originally educated in graphic design and visual communication, I worked as a creative director and producer in fashion, advertising and publishing before training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as a costume and performance designer. As a designer I’ve worked on projects spanning theatre, film, dance and interactive entertainment and am especially interested in multidisciplinary projects.

I currently work in high end TV and film as a costume design assistant specialising in costume graphics, digital artworking, illustration and concept design. I work with designers to communicate their vision via illustration, visual research and presentation design, as well as facilitating special process work such as laser cutting, screen printing, digiprint and costume props. I’m comfortable acting as a bridge between repro and the design room, helping to create bespoke artwork in collaboration with the design team.

  • HER NAKED SKIN - SET & PROJECTION DESIGN

    I produced the set and projection designs for 'HER NAKED SKIN' at Circomedia Bristol, written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz and directed by Sarah Bedi with costume designs from Edoardo Lelli. We responded to the verticality of the venue (formally an 18th Century church) through the installation of a 30ft lightbox frame, which exposed the audience with white light during key sequences. The four seating banks were designed in a traverse formation, creating a claustrophobic and combative play space. This helped to magnify the extremity of significant scenes and challenged the audience to feel implicit in the action. Projection was used to highlight key moments in women's suffrage history, later joined by contemporary voices of the LGBTQ+ / feminist movements.
