Since a young age I have always been inspired by the magic of theatre. Becoming a puppeteer has allowed me to produce and visualise my own ideas and creations. There is something amazing about being able to bring puppetry to wider audiences and suspend people’s disbelief while I bring a character to life. It has allowed me to really explore the pure joy of imagination and explore fantasy worlds. I have experience in making and performing with all kinds of puppets and I specialise in tabletop and handheld puppets, including animals and fantasy characters.

Whilst Learning at central I have been able to not only expand my skills but also develop my self as an artist. By this I mean what I want to achieve within my work. I am very keen to allow my work to be fluid and take different directions but for me there will always be some things that I believe are key to me and my work and they will always stay the same. These are core ideas that will make sure that no matter the difference in my work I am always able to stay true to myself and make sure that I am keeping my self as an artist at the core of everything I do.

My goals while working are:

  1. To never stop learning and developing my own skills.

  2. To be open with my own knowledge and to share with others what I have learnt.

  3. To always have an awareness of my Carbon footprint and the effect my work has on the planet.

  4. To be kind and have fun.

I am so excited to see what happens next! I can’t wait to be working in teams with other amazing and talented creatives. I can’t wait to see how my work will evolve over the next few years and who I may be able to work with.

I want to able to work with other production companies as well as creating my own shows and taking on commissions for puppet making.
