About me


Having 15 years of professional experience in working for Theatre, essentially in Belgium and Switzerland as a Scenographer/Set designer, I have had many opportunities to design costumes and work in collaboration with seamstresses and costume makers.
This experience has enticed me to reorient my career towards costume making.
I have spent the last two years studying and training to reinforce my sewing and pattern cutting skills. During this period I have also had the opportunity to make costumes for small theatre productions.

I am currently seeking work placements to further my experience in this field. Being a very enthusiastic and efficient person, I enjoy working with a team and take directions very well. I am also very aware of what is expected of a seamstress/costume maker in theatre having myself collaborated with them on productions.

I think the most important is my passion for what I do, I am very interested in all historic period costumes. I am a very hands-on and meticulous worker with very good sewing skills. Fabric has always played a big part in my set designs and on many occasions I have been involved in the making, dyeing, painting and aging of costumes and sets.

The last two years have convinced me to step away from designing to focus on the making of costumes designed by others. I am very interested in the pattern cutting process, finding the right shapes that enable the perfect fit.
