She gained a BA in printed textiles at Liverpool College of Art, then later moved into the world of costume design, working for the RSC, the BBC and the Royal Opera House and teaching at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. She also trained with Rose Cory, Royal Warrant Holder and world-renowned teacher.
