About me and CV.

I am a Set and Costume designer based in Dublin. I work across theatre, dance, opera and the occasional film and music video. I am interested in contemporary adaptations, new writing and devised work. I like to collaborate on vibrant, expressionistic work, where design propels as well as supports. I’m half-Swedish and feel that this inheritance of Scandinavian design, language and culture permeates my attitudes to form and functionality. I hold a first class honours degree in Drama and Theatre Studies from Trinity College, Dublin and participated in the Rough Magic SEEDs Artist Development program 2016-2017. I have designed for directors including Oonagh Murphy, Doireann Coady, Ronan Phelan, Maisie Lee, Olwen Fouéré, Emma Martin, Zoe Ni Riordain, Louis Lovett, Janet Moran and Claire O’Reilly. Assistant and Associate Design credits include assisting Chloe Lamford on the Royal Court’s production of Road, directed by John Tiffany, and Associate Designer on The Snapper in The Gate, 2019.

In 2016 I co-founded MALAPROP. We make bold, genre-spanning work which has design as a core element, despite our un-funded, fringe-y status.  MALAPROP has been successfully touring work to London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bejing. Our fourth show, Everything Not Saved, was featured on The Guardian's ‘Best Shows of The Festival” list in 2018.
