Hi my name is Anne and I live in Devon. I am a Textile & Costume Designer-Maker.

 

I have a degree in Textile & Surface Pattern Design and a passion for Theatre and costume.

My love of textiles and designing has grown from a lifetime of collecting fabrics, buttons, beads and found objects. Art work and designs are developed through an interest in Architecture, Theatre, Costume and Landscape.

Growing up in the South-east of England, I trod the boards with the wonderful Conrose Players and applied my sewing skills to their costumes. Now living in the West Country I have been designing and making costumes for Local Community Theatre groups for the past 6 years. I have freelanced as Wardrobe assistant on 'The Day we Played Brazil' at Exeter's Northcott Theatre, and designed and make Pantomime costume for professional touring company, Wonder Productions.
