I studied Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University, during this time I undertook a teaching placement on the Art and Design Foundation Course at Leeds College of Art, where I later held a part-time role for 10 years.
Early within my career I understood the importance of redeveloping a creative practice alongside teaching, where the two could feed into and enhance one another. I therefore undertook internships to identify the direction I wanted to take.
I initially interned with London School of Samba, making costumes for their Notting Hill Carnival performance, and went on to work on a number of productions for the Royal Stratford East Theatre, The Royal Court Theatre and Nuffield Theatre as a freelance costume maker.
In 2011 I started the part-time MA in Costume Design for Performance at London College of Fashion, where I was introduced to character and narrative analysis using these as a basis for research to develop designs for costume and performance.
Since graduation, I have worked with Lola Maury Dance, IJAD Dance, SKAdooSH Dance, Extant and Spectra Ensemble, designing costumes for dance and interactive performance. Recently I have undertaken a Senior Lecturer role on Manchester Metropolitan University’s Art and Design Foundation Course.
