Your practice
How did your interest in theatre design and production begin?

The first moment I knew I wanted to work in theatre was the opening to the 2012 olympics in London. From that moment I began involving myself in a local drama school, however I soon realised that I was best suited behind the scenes. I specialised in print and costume construction at university and have been creating costumes ever since. Pop culture inspires my costumes, adding a twist and extra characterisation into costumes is something I enjoy.
