“Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth. It really does establish who they are.” - Colleen Atwood
Costume is a powerful tool, but it needs to be handled with care… lack of attention to detail can easily undermine and sabotage it.
Whilst at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama I was able to explore various aspects of performance design and I strongly believe that, for a good design to work effectively, it has to be executed with sensitivity, skill and care.
I really enjoy making costumes; collaborating with directors, designers and actors to bring their artistic vision to life.
I am a creative but organised person, skilled in costume interpretation, construction and alteration, working well under pressure to produce costumes finished to the highest standard.
