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.

The Toilet Roll Puppets Return

I've spent the evening trying to finish off the toilet roll puppets and this one has come along a right treat!

Now all I need to figure out is the head. I'm really stumped by this as it will obviously depend on the expression and type of face he's going to have. I'll give it a go tomorrow!

Sweeney Todd, Judge Turpin's little feet!

After the day in the workshop, I have some fun little feet to play with!
