"I'm looking for the truth. The audience doesn't come to see you, they come to see themselves." - Julianne Moore
Acting has been my ambition ever since I was a little girl. I’d join after-school drama clubs, watch behind the scenes of a breath-taking movie and think to myself, “it must be so thrilling to be one person and suddenly then walk into another room and be someone else, completely different from who you were before”. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a part of something so creative and powerful, to experience someone else’s life, be put in their shoes. How they feel at that very moment and how they change through time. I've been acting and participating in acting groups since I was eight years old. This includes many nativity plays being different characters each year. I've performed with my primary school and took part in after-school drama clubs, for four years until graduation.

I then went on studying drama at secondary school, becoming more involved in going out and seeing more theatre. One that really motivated me and became my favourite Theatre/musical piece was Blood Brothers to which I saw at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry in 2013. That’s when I took my acting career to the next level and began to study Performing Arts at my local college. Here I was able to learn about myself and improve my techniques as an actor. I was also introduced to musical theatre, coming out of my comfort zone and heightening my confidence in my vocal skills. I’ve been able to perform in front of live audiences within musical and theatre. I've performed in performances such as 'Smashed' (2015), 'Rock of Ages' (2017), 'Life is a Cabaret' (2018) and so on.

Furthermore, I’m also participating in a Senior Youth Theatre group at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. This also includes performing in a variety of theatre work with them such as 'The Impossible Language of the Time' (2015), 'Tethered to the Light' (2017) and 'Being Human' (2019). On the contrary, this experience has helped me mould into an improved actor and be open to further opportunities such as writing and directing. Which landed me in a role to also write and direct the depression scene for 'Tethered to the Light' and write a script called 'Being Human'. With being connected through the Belgrade Theatre, I’ve worked amongst other theatre companies such as Frantic Assembly and Highly Sprung. Performing in shows such as 'Transformation' (2016), 'Absolute Truth' (2017), 'Oxygen' (2018) and 'Happy Happy' (2019).

I’m now currently studying a BA Hons Theatre & Professional Practice at Coventry University, where I’m adapting and pushing my limits further whilst taking on new challenges. Recent productions involve 'Game Show' (2018) and 'A Christmas Carol' (2019).

Collaborating within this industry has given me the ability to work behind the scenes and within many theatres as several characters with minor roles. I have worked as an extra in a voice-over web series for 'The Faction of Farce' (2018) portraying a Screaming Bank Customer. I've also been given the opportunity to be a background extra for the Channel 5 TV series 'The Gadget Show' (2019) participating as an audience member.

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


My inspirational plus-size model is Rebel Wilson, she knows how to flaunt her beautiful curves and show people that no matter what size you are, you can be YOU. That is my motivation, inspiration and passion to show anyone that you can be who you want to be, enough of being the same, be unique, be spontaneous but most of all be yourself. I love fashion, I love creating new styles, trying new brands anything that shows off my curves and inspires other curvy women.

I have acquired experience in front of the camera both modelling and acting, I know how to move and follow direction. However, I would like to do more, I would like to take on new challenges, experience a variety of incredible opportunities within the modelling industry and meet new people, have fun along the way because that's what this industry is really about. It's about creating moments and having a good time.

I've entered the modelling competition, Ms Curvaceous UK (2019) and gained further experience in modelling during the workshop, I've taken on a new challenge and skill of Cat Walking, taught by professional models that I never saw myself doing before and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Furthermore, I do photoshoots to help build up photographers portfolios as well as my own, embracing the plus-size industry. Sharing my own styles and creativity as well as those who inspire me.

Influencer

I'm an influencer in fashion for the Plus-size community, representing women of all shape and sizes. Sometimes I collaborate with brands to promote their products on my social media, such as Instagram. I have worked with companies such as Juniper Berry Store and Big Girl Season 365.

Please note that I DO NOT work with brands who want me to purchase their items at a discount to promote on my page. I only collaborate with brands who send their samples for free to promote or in a paid-partnership collaboration.

I have trained in musical theatre for three years at college. Performing in musicals such as 'Encore' (2016), 'Rock of Ages' (2017) and 'Life is a Cabaret' (2018). All of which have improved and heightened my confidence and vocal skills on a huge scale compared to my first session with the company.

I have acquired a lot of experience such as backing vocals and lead vocals during my time there. Furthermore, I've met some wonderful people on this journey and have been able to understand musical theatre more. I started out as a nervous student and then bloomed into a confident singer, although I wouldn't categorise myself as a professional or a singer.

TV & Reality

I've had some experience within TV, starring in the web series 'The Faction of Farce' as one of the voice-overs in the third season, directed by Ross K. Foad. I've also been an audience member for the 'Gadget Show' on Channel 5.

I've also had previous experience in interviews, having done a reality TV-styled interview back in 2011 at the Herbert Art Gallery & Media for one of our projects alongside filmography. Also joining in on the interview for the parliament taken place at my college back in 2014, interviewing each candidate alongside other participants from other courses.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working behind the scenes, having somewhat involvement within creating a show. I have helped out with the backstage crew at the Albany Theatre and Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. This includes setting the stage, doing the get-on and get-off, making sure the actors are ready with their props.

During my time at college, I had designed posters, programmes and tickets for our upcoming shows. I've also designed some artwork using Adobe After Effects for a title sequence in the film 'Sons of Sam' (2019). This also includes being a casting director for the film. Amongst being apart of the Belgrade Senior Youth Theatre, I've had the amazing opportunity to enhance my writing skills and write two shows. 'Tethered to the Light' (2017), the depression scene and 'Being Human' (2019).

At school I studied Art & Illustration and pursued this creative journey to college, where I studied Level 2 Diploma in Art & Design, succeeding and being rewarded with the overall grades of B/Merit. Furthermore, during my youth, I was invited to participate on the Herbert Arts Gallery media course. Where I adapted my creative skills further by learning how to; use a green screen, take photographs,  voiceover work using play dough, radio presenter, camera and microphone operation, editing footages and photos using Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro.

This creativity is now but a hobby of mine, I continue to take on new challenges and adapt my art skills within a variety of areas. I have an Instagram page, specifically to showcase my artwork which is @Gemogorgon. I am always up for collaboration, if you're needing a particular style of artwork, then please don't hesitate to contact me. I will always given everything ago, even the most challenging requests.

Photography is one of my creative hobbies alongside art. I have trained in photography and filmography at the Herbert Art Gallary, Coventry in 2011. Focussing on photoshop, filming and photography on the course and learning how to edit those images using Adobe photoshop.

In 2013, I studied Media Studies and Art & Illustration at secondary school, I was trained further in editing photos and designing them into artwork using Adobe photoshop. This is where I developed my skills using a professional camera and editing techniques such as lighting and focusing.

Furthermore, I went on to study Art & Design at college where I studied a photography module using the darkroom to create photographic films. Taking pictures of people and scenery then developing the film later on.

I offer various styles of shoots, whether it's actors headshots, modelling, family photos, pet portraits, scenery and wildlife photography. I only charge £50 for 10 images, and £5 per additional image. The client will select their images online and then those images will, later on, be edited and sent back to the client via email within 2-5 working days.
