Open Doors

I am an art department freelancer for film and television, having graduated from the USW TV & Film Set Design course in 2018. My recent projects have included Silent Witness (BBC), The End of the F***ing World (Channel 4) and Sex Education (Netflix).

I love the immersive nature of production design and the detailed craft involved in designing believable worlds for the screen. I enjoy working in a close-knit team and thrive in a busy environment, whether running errands on the road or getting my hands dirty when decorating and dressing sets. My strengths include graphic design, drafting, modelmaking and petty cash buying. I am currently on the Sara Putt Trainee Scheme and was also a mentee on the Talking Point 2019 Mentoring Network.

I also work as an illustrator and have collaborated with clients including BBC Studios and Penguin Random House UK. My work includes cover designs for the BBC Doctor Who steelbook range (series 4, 5 and 6).

I am based in Hampshire and have worked in London and South Wales; happy to work wherever I'm needed. A full CV and portfolio is available on request. I hold a full UK driving licence and own car.
