Art Department Assistant

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

After graduating from the University of Salzburg, Austria, with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2013, I worked as a psychological research assistant at Klinikum Rechts der Isar in Munich, Germany. Simultaneously I worked on photography, theatre and film projects to build an artistic portfolio.

In late 2014 I moved to London, UK, to attend the MA Performance Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins College of the Arts. I graduated in the summer of 2016 with my solo exhibition [nyctophilia] showcasing performances and costumes. During and ever since my studies I have constantly kept up a variety of film jobs to widen my knowledge and develop my skills.

In 2016 I production designed my first feature film, Sunburn, directed by Anthony Alleyne.

I love nature and grow my own produce in my East London backyard. I appreciate attention to detail and find nothing more relaxing than drawing intricate illustrations or creating ageing effects on sets. I am an established pixel witch working for Crystal Cactus.

My idols are Tim Burton, Rick Heinrichs, FKA Twigs and Edgar Allan Poe.

If you're interested in working with me, I would be delighted to hear about your ideas.
