I am a very versatile, award winning actress, with many years acting experience, in theatre, television and film and have been trained by the RSC.. I am extremely reliable, hard-working and professional and I believe I bring integrity to each role. I thoroughly enjoy creating something magical, whether it be in theatre or film. I have played numerous roles over the years from walk-on parts to lead roles. I have also done voice-overs and have had singing roles and am a mezzo-soprano. I have directed a number of productions. Although my first love is the theatre, I also find joy in the very different process of filming. I have a playing age of 28 - 48.

I am also an experienced theatre and show director, producer, and project and events manager. I am Artistic Director of Alchemy Theatre & Arts Management Ltd, a newly-formed company that works particularly with Shakespeare and delivers Shakespeare and performance workshops. We also can provide directors, producers, casting directors, actors and voice-overs.
