I have been rapidly accumulating experience in dramas and films in the art department and am looking to continue to utilise my art training and skills learnt, on future productions. I have worked under pressure in various environments: feature films, studio television, music videos and high-end Television dramas and can thus bring a level of experience and proficiency to match my relentless work ethic along with my passion for art and film. I have experience creating props - including drawing sketches that appeared in characters notebooks, writing fake letters, cheques and other documents to match the neccesary period, reading through scripts to prepare and organising props for the following days, dressing sets and filling in as prop standby trainee.

As a keen artist, I have always been working on my artistic abilities and adding to them with new skills - in addition to using Photoshop for years and have recently begun digitally drawing and using 3D/ CAD software. I am deeply passionate about both art and film, and as a result I am completely dedicated to working in the art department and diving into every project I am a part of in order to help create the best result possible. For the Royal Television Society award winning short film, The Unveiling, I created a series of digital paintings in the style of oil paintings, using various software, to be printed on canvas and designed to blend in in a fine art gallery. The film went on to win and be nominated for a host of other awards.

Some of my work - including technical and digital drawings can be found here:
