London based maker Theatre, T.V and film. I have been propmaking for many years.
During my time as a freelancer at The Royal Opera House and beyond,
I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing people designers, scenics, makers, crew. I have listened to some beautiful singing and watched young dancers bloom. If I added up the number of props I have made it up to now, it would be nearing a thousand.
Over the years I have made a collection of assorted puppets, a small fly to a giant skeleton puppet, several animals, including dogs, monkeys, cats and birds. Also fake banquets, birthday and wedding cakes, Chinese take aways; elaborate masks and headdresses; upholsterd chairs, sewn cushions, made flags and sewn the opera favourite, the money bag. I have sculpted and dressed tiny dolls to life size busts, carved rocks, painted sets and made props with a small or larger budget.
Own assorted tools, skills and a sense of humour.
