A story of commitment …

…a journey of creative ambition.

I graduated from University of Westminster with an Upper Second Degree in Photography in 2006 and have ever since strengthened my skill set to offer a rounded service in the creative industry.

Based in London for over 20 years – only in the last 5 years it became clear that the filmmaker world could utilise my broad skill set and passions and I am following this calling with full focus. The last 7 years (with 3 years studio practice) have reinforced my identity as visual artist- and my commitments to the visual arts.

My practice in the medium of (studio) photography for 10 years, has informed my way of seeing and a sense of creating images, always with a hint of my passion for Paintings ; communicating a story and content a little beyond the surface of the image itself.

With my track record in painting and a list of exhibitions showing my Art in London and abroad (see below), the creative industry and in particular filmmakers; hold my full attention and focus.

I had also the pleasure of being on big budget productions for TV & Film, as Supporting Artist spanning jobs at Warner brother, Elstree studio, Three mills…, in precarious location in and outside London- in regular intervals spanning the last 10 years. Absorbing the world in and around filmmaking, observing and developing an appetite to learn more.

This has now climaxed in my involvement and journey into the Art Department. This is where I truly belong.: Working intensely on my portfolio (completing 5 shortfilms in the last 3 years), abilities and taking various steps to progress:

I have undertaken training at FDI, Pinewood Studio to graduated in Art Direction in 2021. And am currently working as general crew, stage hand, set builder, dresser, scenic artist keeping myself nimble and on my toes.

In my training, I worked alongside Terry Ackland-Snow at Pinewood studio, who is sure to hon in on my skill set and abilities: to visualise and do the draughting for TV and Film, adequately. Realising a story world …

Sure to keep my passion for the industry alight; reaching for new horizons in the art department: I have passed my certification to draft for TV & Film in March 2020 and joined the BFDG , as affiliated member in December 2020 .
