I‘m a costume designer and maker for performance. I have just completed my BA(Hons) degree at Edinburgh College of Art, studying Performance Costume.  I’ve been working on my final projects; a site-specific theatre production of the fairy-tale Beauty and the Beast and a contemporary version of Surrealist film The Exterminating Angel.

I am passionate about design, the process of developing and understanding a character and bringing that realised character to life through costume. I’m interested in both historical and contemporary design for theatre, film and TV, and dance pieces. Over the course of my degree I have developed skills in design, historical pattern cutting, textiles and all Adobe creative suites. I have worked on a number of projects on the course and externally, including a number of short films and plays.
