A quick introduction:
From Yorkshire originally, I am an artist and theatre designer working internationally and across the UK.
I studied fine art at the Glasgow School of Art and was then based in Scotland for the best part of a decade, working as an exhibiting artist and designing my first few theatre productions. In this period I also began a working relationship with director and designer Stewart Laing, who I worked with on various opera and theatre productions.
I then went to study on the post-graduate Motley Theatre Design Course in London, following which I was shortlisted for the Jocelyn Herbert Award and was also a 2007 Linbury Prize finalist.
Since then I've worked with a wide range of companies that includes Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Scottish Opera, Metropolitan Opera, Malmö Opera, Skånes Dansteater, Vilnius City Opera, National Theatre, National Theatre of Scotland, Lyric Hammersmith, the Traverse Theatre and Candoco whilst also collaborating with exciting younger companies such as Liveartshow, Tangled Feet and bgroup.
My fine art practice has always gone hand in hand with designing for theatre, and I continue to both make and exhibit my own work.
This website will hopefully operate as an online archive and reference point, demonstrating the full range of my creative output. This includes scenography, painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography, play-writing, musical composition, poetry, model-making and teaching.
Thanks for your time.
