About me
Highly skilled creative with a focus on art direction, prop making and set dressing/design. I also have a passion for art and never stop learning new skills! I grew up as my mothers artist assistant (it’s in the blood) and after studying image styling for performance at London College of Fashion I went on to study Prop Making (BA hons ) at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Whilst in my final year I gained experience as an art dept assistant on Danny Boyle’s channel 4 pilot Babylon and developed my interest in the art department. Since university I have had jobs working as a prop maker in theatre, film and for window display with companies such as John Lewis and Sainsburys. I have a natural talent for content creation and have extensive experienced in producing short form documentary and promotional content for platforms such as Dazed Digital and Boiler Room. As well as promotional and educational content creation for fashion brands(workshops, photography, Instagram/Facebook videos)
