I trained in Theatre Design at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design in London, and worked in the wardrobe department on film and television productions for several years after graduating. I then spent many years away from the industry, working as a fine artist and writer, but four years ago I began work in the Running Wardrobe department at Glyndebourne Opera House, UK. I am now working as a designer for performance again, and am currently working on my third deign project and loving every moment. Exciting times!
