I specialise in the creation and restoration of
puppets, props and creature effects for TV, Film and Theatre.
My work as a freelance creature effects artist has enabled me to work for a range of studios over the years.
Throughout this experience I have built up an extensive range of skills, working with a variety of materials. Every piece I work on requires my strong attention to detail and an ability to problem solve.
FILM, TV PROP
& PUPPET RESTORATION
My speciality is restoring tv, film and theatre memorabilia, items such as puppets, models, masks and props.
My technique is to restore these items as close to their original condition. My aim is not to create a new and polished finish. I use sympathetic art finishing with the care of a musuem conservationist .
CREATURE EFFECTS ARTIST,
SCULPTOR & MODEL MAKER
My work as a creature effects artist has enabled me to freelance for a range of studios over the past 10 years, working on a range of projects. These include models for museums and exhibitions, tv programmes, films, advertising, fashion and theatre.
I have worked for studios including Madame Tussauds, Artem, Crawley Creatures, Millennium FX, Event FX and Blind Summit. Prior to my work in creature effects I worked in theatre and as an assistant to sculptor Brian Alabaster in his Suffolk Foundry. I later went on to assist sculptor Andrew Sinclair. I assisted them both in creating beautiful fine art sculptures for private collectors and exhibiting at Chelsea Flower show and The Great British Sculpture Show.
