Fine art textiles and printmaking is the point from which I started my creative journey. Following a strong interest in puppetry I moved on to study SFX and puppetry at IADT. From there I worked as a puppet maker and finally made the leap to performing with my puppets. I have been facilitating workshops in puppet making and puppeteering for over ten years now, my workshops are often combined with a puppet show before the workshop which really helps to bring the puppets to life.
