With 17 years experience in creating decorative and immersive experiences and events, I am a logistics and ideas focussed creative with a drive for perfection. Working as an art director, set designer and prop maker I have experience working in theatre, film, retail and the events industry. Currently based in Ibiza, I am open to both local and remote work. I am currently the art director for both Noisily Festival and The Shop Ibiza and in both cases, my roles and my responsibilities are primarily to add magic, flare and beauty to all the projects I touch. My experience, not only as a creative but as a production manager means that logistically, my projects and events run smoothly and are executed to the highest and professional standard. Recently I have been invited to lead the decor team in the stages area at The Global Eclipse festival in Patagonia, Argentina this December 2020. I have a diverse creative skill-set including; artistic direction, event production, set and stage design, technical drawing, 3D modelling with a history of carpentry, working with textiles, sculpting, mold-making, scenic painting and rigging. As art director of Noisily Festival I am responsible for commissioning and curating all onsite art, including all stage design and installation art. I manage the area budget and all the logistics for these bookings, including working alongside technical teams and compiling with health and safely. At The Shop Ibiza, I am client facing, I suggest or work with existing event themes and develop concepts individually for each client. I design creative production and manage both the props and set building departments, all the way through to installation and derig. I propose and book entertainment and complementary services. Education includes training as a technical artist at UAL, Wimbledon College of Art graduating in 2009 with a BA in Technical Arts and Special Effects. I am always on the lookout for exciting new projects.
