What I do:

A little more about me:
My work has mainly involved designing and making puppets of all scales and sizes. I have worked closely with a puppet making company who have made for Cirque du Soleil and Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. Some of my work has consisted of making oversized dragon costumes commissioned by English Heritage for St. George’s day, whilst other work has involved making small rod puppets that are performed inside an 18th Century dress.
Love a bit of story telling, character inventing and illustrating quirky creatures.
Location:
Pembrokeshire, Cardiff.
