I am an Art Department Trainee on Creative Skillset High End Trainee Finder. I am currently based in Edinburgh and I also have bases in Glasgow and Northern Ireland

Last year I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University's BA Film course, specialising in Production Design. I hope to gain more experience in the art department of fictional Television and Film.

I have wanted to work in Film/TV since I was young, I worked on a film called 'High-Rise' which made me want to work specifically in the art department. Production Designer, Mark Tildesly and Set Decorator, Paki Smith where very inspiring and I loved watching them transform spaces. At the minute I am most interested in becomming an art department assistant, however I would love the chance to learn more and improve my experience in all areas of the art department.
