I am in my final year at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design where I am studying Theatre, Performance and Event Design. My work experience is diverse and ranges from local art galleries to national music festivals. I am a designer and a maker. I specialise in events, festivals, attractions, exhibitions and have produced work from a live client brief for Merlin Entertainments. I am looking forward to developing and utilising my skills within industry employment. I invite you to browse through the photographs displayed on this website which will give you a brief overview of some of my work.

BoomTown Festival Design

My design is for the annual music and arts festival BoomTown Fair in Winchester. The Festival is composed of nine diversely themed districts. 

I have redesigned the district known as TrenchTown to create a new immersive and engaging site for the citizens of BoomTown. The theme of my design is based on the Mesoamerican era and is influenced by the life, culture and architecture of this period. 

My design TempleTown includes a main stage resembling a Mayan temple and pyramid, a ball court for the game Pitz, an entranceway with corbel arches as well as several street venues and a VIP campsite.
