My particular skill set is leather sculpting. I do a lot of 'alien' animal skin textures inspired by nature. I love using leather in unconventional ways. What some people may not know is that the garments on a digital character are all handcrafted and real, which is vital to make the digital character more believable to the viewer.
First job in film?
My first job after drama school was The Hobbit Trilogy, where my love of leather began.
Most exciting thing about working on the sequels?
We create each costume for each character in great detail that is specific to their individual clan.
Fun fact about yourself?
I once worked as a personal chef for a Vogue editor. Now I am our department's birthday cake chef, a position I take very seriously.
