CV

I am a freelance prop-maker and scenic painter based in London with a background in fine art sculpture from Falmouth College of Art. I have 10 years experience creating scenery.

I have worked for west end theatre, operas and repertory theatres. I have also worked on feature films and for TV and advertising, window displays and events.

I am used to working to tight deadlines and budgets, ordering materials and interpreting designs. With my background in fine art I believe I work with creativity and ingenuity.

I thoroughly enjoy any chance I get to sculpt, paint and create and love learning about different materials and techniques. I have a car and good knowledge of London and will travel regionally.
