Film

Being from a theatre background, I trained in both set & costume design and have worked in both designing & art directing a couple of short films & an advert plus short videos used as part of theatre pieces. I was Production Designer on a feature film for the British Youth Film Project in 2006 and worked freelance in the art department on shoots for Hollyoaks from 2004-2006. Unfortunately feature film & tv schedules are not that family friendly so am limited to shorts and youth & community films while mine are young. I am available for making props & costumes in my studio in Manchester, and buying as I am an expert shopper with extensive experience sourcing materials, props & costumes for film & theatre.
