ON THEATRE DESIGN

When I work on a design I like to start by, if it’s text based, taking the piece apart and understanding its core. Once I have found the key concepts and discussed with the director the angle we want to come from, I like to put a twist on it and come at it from a surprising angle, one that will make the audience think. My research and inspiration points are very wide. I look at historical document photography, relevant artwork of the period, contemporary art, the society of the period, the political and cultural background, architecture and both current and past designers. I aim to bring out the concept and message of the play through my designs to help tell the audience the story and get the message of the work across. My aesthetic is often very painterly. I have a very illustrative style and my design process includes lots of sketches and 2d illustrations. I love colour and patterns that make a bold statement. My work includes set design, installation design, costume design, design and styling for editorial photo shoots, visual merchandising and illustrations.
