About Kaarina

Soprano voice, various solo and backing vocals experience. I also sing in a pagan band and we are working on our album.

Street and community theatre experience plus short film, radio and theatre experience. Plays include Last of Jane Austen - Shirl Hendrix - director; Red Hot Cinders, Noir - both musicals - Anne McMaster - director; Facades - Keith Waite - director - Riverside Studios Hammersmith.

I am an actress, singer and dancer. I am fun loving and get on well with all sorts of people. I am easy to work with and have a great sense of humour. I am hard working and enthusiastic. I have excellent communication and listening skills and a lot of life experience which helps me to build the character in a role and find the appropriate emotions for that character/role. I have various experience in performing. My singing voice lends itself to certain styles of music but mostly to songs from musicals, or to songs such as those sung by various artists e.g. Sarah Brightman, Barbra Streisand, Katherine Jenkins, Celine Dion, Sarah McLachlan, some Eva Cassidy and some soft rock like Eleanor and the lost as well as gospel. I am currently in a pagan band and we are completing our first album.

For relaxation, I create pieces of art in oil and watercolour and write and write blogs when the desire/time comes upon me. I have, over the years worked on and off as a trained nurse in addiction with big gaps in-between. I am also a trained medical herbalist.

Other skills: I can do basic archery, I can swim - basic, dance - lyrical ballet, expressive dance and modern - good, I can do certain DIY jobs in the house and some car mechanics - I used to be able to do more on older cars but now everything is diagnosed by computers, it is not as easy! I used to teach basic mechanics to women. I can knit, sew and crochet - should that ever be useful for a role!
