As a designer in theatre, I enjoy the element of play, and believe a performance should be just as interactive for the audience as it is for the performers. In my work I like to look at space, how it changes in a performance, how it effects a performance and try to incorporate it into the narrative as much as possible.

I am a hardcore puppetry and mask enthusiast. I have worked for theatre companies such as 'Pointed Arrow' and 'Hope Street Limited', as well as TV 'BBC Horizon' and most recently Music Videos. I like to experiment with different styles of puppetry, also fusing styles together. Most of my work is made from recycled materials as I think it gives a fantastic old haggard dimension to the work.

Lolita is getting there!

After a week of playing and making and sewing and stabbing myself in the fingers many times..


Before I had trimmed her arms and legs.

 I think that when I finally meet the lady which I have based Lolita on, it will be the most bizarre moment of my life. I have studied her face so much in this last week that I think I might get scared if I were to see her up close.

My Lolita.

A new project which I have begun and am currently naming 'My Lolita' as a credit to the book I am currently reading. Here are the images and sketches of the project so far...

Hair added for comedy value, literally to amuse myself!

This will eventually become a fully functioning marionette. I am really excited about how this project is going so far.
