Costume maker - period and contemporary styles

I'm a trained costume maker based in Sheffield, England. I've worked for a number of theatre and TV production companies, including: Hackney Music Development Trust, Opera North, Red Production, Sheffield Theatres and Scottish Opera (including costumes commissioned by the New York Metropolitan Opera). Additional experience includes ice skating costumes, private commissions and alterations.

As a costume maker my skills include costume research, design, historical and contemporary costume construction, pattern cutting, costume breakdown, wardrobe management, costume continuity, fittings and alterations.

In the Portfolio section you’ll find examples of my work and further information about me (including my CV).

I’m currently working at Opera North until May 2015, although I am still available for private commissions.
