Scenic ArtistScroll Down
I am a Midlands based freelance Scenic Artist who is very happy to travel for work if necessary. I am passionate about musical theatre, ballet and opera. I enjoy working on a large scale to creatively solve problems and take a design from concept into reality.
I have experienced multiple roles within the scenic art department for a range of public productions; both within the university and on several industry placements including – Rocket Scenery, National Theatre and RSC. I have also undertaken some film work and hope to broaden my experiences into a variety of industries including Murals and Visual Merchandising.
I am continuously honing my creative skills with a willingness to learn whilst being at my most comfortable within a team. I aspire to eventually become the lead scenic artist within a theatrical workshop environment.
Please feel free to contact me for further information or with any questions you may have.
Both the Street Scene Perspective Project and the Textural Door Project were undertaken in the final two weeks of each of my Placement terms. For context both of these projects at 8 foot tall and approximately 4-5 foot wide.
For the Street Scene I really wanted to practise my traditional perspective cloth skills that are often used in traditional cloth painting. Throughout my time at Central I have discovered a love of cloth painting and I wanted to showcase this with my own personal project that I thoroughly enjoyed.
The Textural Door was inspired by my love of working with texture. I had previously only worked on one show using texture and wanted to experiment more with the limits. This entire piece is textured in tile adhesive and has then been painted in various styles to most accurately depict the various effects needed.
This was the last project that I undertook at Central before the lock-down hit. Unfortunately this project remains unfinished in the workshop until further notice. It was such a nice change to work on such small detailing. I was inspired by the intricate French Commode to replicate it, testing my trompe l’oeil and marbling skills. This will hopefully eventually stand on legs with handles and locks attached to it. What you see here is approximately 1.3 meters wide and 0.8 meters tall.
I painted this sign for The Life Musical during my second year at Central. This was a really enjoyable process as my introduction into sign writing and this is a skill that I hope to continue to develop into my professional career.
I painted these tiles during my second year for the public production of Flare Path. I really enjoyed realising this intricate design for a naturalistic set. I was also Assistant Head of Department on this project and was responsible for delegating tasks and attending production meetings to collaborate with other various departments throughout this show.
I really enjoyed completing this Capital study during my time in lock-down. I started this project during my second year architectural skills with Stuart Hall and have recently completed it. I really enjoyed working on the shading of this project.
Urinetown was my last show at Central and I was the Head of the Scenic Art Department on this show. I really enjoyed the problem solving that came with this show. Achieving a high gloss yellow floor on a tight budget and having a toilet that overflows with blood were just some of these problems. I also particularly enjoyed collaborating with other departments and running my own department during this show. I now aspire to be the lead scenic artist within a workshop environment after this experience.
Throughout my time at Central I have kept a sketchbook of my work so that I am able to record the processes that I have learnt and process what happened compared to my memories of a show. This is something I hope to continue into my professional practice in some capacity.
