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.

Shadow Men!

Here are the first two puppets made for 'The One'.
Whilst making them, I was very unhappy with how they were looking, but as soon as they have gone under the lights they have transformed to look exactly how I had imagined. I'm glad I carried on with them!

Now I need to make 5 little followers . . . watch this space!

Here are the beginnings of the puppets for Richard Petch's music video for 'The One'. Hopefully they will look as awesome as I hope! Thursday, I'm going to be making the real ones and they are going to be ACE!
