I was the production designer and builder for Illyrias national tour of The Sorcerers Apprentice. From the initial sketches to the final built production scenery, I was the creative at every stage. I built the staging, that had to collapse every day and be rebuilt every day, i worked on the illusions under the guidance of magician Paul Daniel and i designed and built all the masks and puppets.
I am a professional puppet maker and creature creator. I design, illustrate, sculpt and fabricate. I also have a performance background as both an actor and puppeteer, so when I develop characters and build puppets I always approach the project from the point of view of the performer. I strive to build characters that are engaging and believable, whilst making them a joy to perform, allowing the puppeteer to get the maximum and most versatile performance out of them. I have worked in puppets and creature FX for a number of years; spanning TV, Film, theatre and online mediums. Please do take a look through my galleries: puppets, Illustration, sculpture, Design or you can look over my experience to see some of the clients and projects I have worked on over the years. if your interested in any of my work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
