I am currently working with York University on their 50th Anniversary production of John Marston’s ‘The Dutch Courtesan. The play looks at love and lust in 17th Century London. As a post-feminist artist and theatre designer there is much to get my teeth into!
It is wonderful working with architectural glass artist Rachel Welford on the refurbishment of La Lanterna restaurant here in Scarborough. Rachel has been commissioned by Rachel and Giorgio Alessio to produce stunning glass panels for the restaurant.
The wonderful artist and illustrator Adam Larkum has produced a new logo for me for Flighty Bantam Hats…I am currently planning my new collection.
I am currently designing two plays by Sir Alan Ayckbourn for the Stephen Joseph Theatre. Whilst the designs are still under wraps I have been using Pinterest as a design tool so that busy designer and director can communicate across sometimes considerable distances! I trialled Pinterest on ‘Scarborough Cinderella’ and ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ at the end of last year and have also introduced it to Theatre students at the University of York. Its a great way to share visuals.
