The Offies recognise and celebrate the excellence, innovation and ingenuity of independent, fringe and alternative theatres across London. to have been recognised in both the Costume Design category for her work on Salome and in the Set Design category for 21 Round for Christmas is a fantastic achievement.

She’s interested in Community Theatre and Theatre in Education. Her work has ranged from set design for Peter Pan at Greenwich Theatre to costume and prop design for Macbeth.
