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.

I forgot to post this agessss ago. I have been playing with different ways to change shadow puppetry using OHP and acetate. Here is one video which displays a few experiments I attempted into one video!
I started by using Inks and water to try and develop an atmosphere, I feel this looks as though a nightmare, or storm is developing. I used many layers of acetate to create these images.
I then when on to experiment with how this may look if shadow puppets were introduced into this idea.
Please ignore the radio in the background! WHO KNOWS WHAT IT'S PLAYING!!
