More Info

I’ve been working in the art department as art director and production designer since 2018 on low budget independent features, short films, music videos and commercial/digital work across a range of different genres including period and fantasy.

I’m looking to start again as an art dept assistant and work my way up in HETV and Film – I’m eager to learn as much as I can from as many people and productions as possible.

I spent the majority of 2022 working as art department assistant on Call the Midwife series 12, which really helped to consolidate my skills and learn how an art department works. I would love any opportunity to continue learning and expanding my skill set.

I am practical, organised and dynamic and used to working with tight budgets and limited time, as well as working with large commercial budgets and managing a small art department.

I also have experience in set dec, dressing, painting, construction, buying, lots of standby work, designing and making props as well as designing sets for studio shoots and working with locations.

Clients for commercial work include Gü, Bear Snacks, Mattel: Barbie, San Miguel, Airbnb, Drambuie, Crayola and Netflix.

Full clean driving license, own car, can drive a van.
