I graduated in Set Design for Stage and Screen from Wimbledon School of Art in 1998 and then went on to investigate the possible use of digital technology for the purposes of theatre set design for my MA in Scenography at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. I am currently continuing my studies, as a PhD researcher at the University of Nottingham.
I have previously worked as a part-time lecturer at Nottingham Trent University between 2005-2013 and visiting lecturer at The University of the Arts, Rose Bruford College, the University of Loughborough in the UK. She has presented papers on interactivity and theatre in Britain, Italy and Germany.

Scenography and Projections
My stage designs for the site-specific theatre production of the Tempest (2006) by Corcadorca Theatre Company can be found in the V&A Theatre and Performance permanent collections. Since 1998 I have designed for site-specific theatre, performances, projections and installations for several companies in the UK and abroad, including for London International Festival of Theatre, Theatre Centre, stage projections for ‘Merlin’ and ‘The Real Thing’ for Manchester Library Theatre, SCENOFEST, 2010, Prague Quadrennial and I worked with The Desperate Optimists to develop 3D computer visualisations for their short film in Town Hall set in West Bromwich .
After a period in the Netherlands, where I explored real-time software in my own work, I returned to the UK in 2004 to complete work my first artist-curatorship, Living Image, 2004, VR installation, for the London International Festival of Theatre. This real-time 3D interactive installation, was a collaboration between myself, Site-specific Artist Trudi Entwistle and installation artist Graham Nicholls and was exhibited at the Dana Centre, London Science Museum in 2004. My more recent multidisciplinary collaboration includes the research and development of Riots1831, ( 2014), an augmented reality mobile app and exhibition at Nottingham Castle, funded by Digital R&D fund for the Arts and workshops with City Arts project Imagine Digital.
