My name is Sibel. I grew up in the Bavarian Alps, an environment which I found to be very influential, and spent most of my childhood drawing and making things. This love of creativity has stayed with me ever since.
Today I am based in London, having graduated from University of the Arts with a degree in Practical Effects for Performance. On the course I acquired specialist design and making skills to interpret any given screenplay or novel for a performance context. I developed a strong understanding of concept design and bespoke realisation of props, sets and costume construction.
Professionally, I have assisted on creative productions including feature films, immersive theatre and fashion events. I have worked on a wide variety of roles from prop making and sourcing to scenic painting, and set dressing. With each of these diverse jobs, placements and collaborations, I have learned how to problem-solve effectively, take direction and constructive feedback, develop strong attention to detail and work hard both individually and as part of a team.
I am a motivated, reliable and versatile creative who is deeply passionate about both art and film, who would love the chance to learn more and gain further experience in all areas of the Art Department. If you are seeking a trainee or some assistance in the industry for future projects, it would be great to hear from you.
