Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

I am a Costume designer for film and television. I feel I have a strong sense of character and the visual impact of costume in each scene . Colour, tone and texture is of utmost importance. 

I have  most recently completed costume design for the upcoming See Saw films / Foxtel television series “The End’ with Frances O’Connor and Harriet Walter leading the cast .

I have been awarded 2 APDG awards and 3 AACTA nominations for detailed work on the acclaimed period drama ‘A Place to Call Home ‘ Seasons 2 – 6  

Other design credits for television include ‘Redfern Now 2’ and ‘Redfern Now’ telemovie ‘Promise Me ‘ both for Blackfella films.

Also the award winning and popular series ‘Packed to the Rafter’s’ for Network 7. 

I have designed the costumes for  feature films  including Tony McNamara’s “The Rage in Placid  Lake “  with Miranda Richardson , Rose Byrne and Ben Lee .   ‘The Man who Sued God ‘ with Billy Connolly and Judy Davis

I have also designed set and costumes for theatre productions at  the Belvoir St Theatre , MTC  and ATYP .

I am currently designing costumes on “The Secret She Keeps’ a television series based on the Michael Rowbotham book of the same name , for Lingo Pictures  and Network 10 .

Over the years I have worked with many directors including  Rachel Perkins , Wayne Blair , Jeremy Simms ,Shirley Barrett,  Catherine Millar , Kriv Stenders ,Tony McNamara , Mark Joffe , Jonathan Borough , Cherie Nowland , Steve Beck , Paul Goldman and Tony Krawitz.
