I have an interest in dressing bodies for the stage but my main aim is in exploring how costume design can become more sustainable in response to the rising damage of climate change.
I have recently completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Hull where I studied Drama and Theatre Practice and am now continuing my postgraduate studies in the course Theatre Making at the same university.
Over the last few years I have worked in a variety of roles on various productions. I have been a wardrobe assistant, a costume supervisor and have had many opportunities to work as head designer and some of this work features in the gallery.
I am currently working on creating my own vision of what a sustainable theatre costume could look like as a result of how fashion is already practising sustainability. I am titling it the metamorphic costume and this is something I am exploring both theoretically and practically.

I am incredibly passionate about making sustainable choices in my personal life and I also have a great love for costume design. Finding a way to combine the two has been incredibly exciting both practically and academically. As part of my MA, I created and explored The Metamorphic Costume as a tool of sustainable theatre. There is more about this project below.
