Approach to the work/professional ethos

I first became interested in puppets during my degree. After researching more deeply into puppetry I became engrossed in the magic and eclectic history and decided to look for work in the field. In the future I hope to create my own small scale puppet shows and workshops to take on tour.

Art is passion and passion should be shared. Puppets make me happy, but what makes me happiest is seeing the smiles on the faces of my audiences and participants. One of the things that attracts me to puppetry is that it encompasses a wide range of skills and interest, and depending on the style of puppet, can be made simply and quickly in an afternoon, or made more detailed making it a longer and more loving process. Participants can watch, make and perform with puppets, which makes puppetry a highly accessible art form.
