Hello

I am a maker and puppeteer from Donegal, Ireland, living in Manchester. I graduated in 2016 in Costume Design for Stage and Screen from IADT in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. I started out working in costume departments for film and TV, but got a taste for outdoor arts volunteering with Walk the Plank in 2013 and haven't looked back. 

My work has expanded into puppeteering, facilitating, and large scale puppet making since delving into the outdoor arts. I get a real buzz of the liveness of performing, of making an big impact on the street, and of making accessible art that communities can participate in.

I work with a variety of different companies and artists, including Walk the Plank, Alison Duddle and Wild Rumpus. I frequently collaborate with Jonny Quick. His work can be seen at  http://jonnyquick.co.uk/.
