I completed my degree at BIAD, UCE, Birmingham gaining a First Class Theatre Design Ba(Hons). I worked in the Theatre and TV industry for a number of years in all areas (set design, costume, props, TV) until training as a teacher in 2007. Beams and Bobbins began in 2015 when i purchased a laser cutter for my home studio.  I continued to work as a Design and Technology teacher for 9 years working up to Subject Leader / Assistant Faculty Leader and  I left teaching in July 2017 to develop my business and to help develop my husbands business also. In my (limited) free time I like to ride my Motorbike and perform in my band Trinity Road.
