Ann’s early career began in the costume departments of the Crucible Theatre Sheffield , South Yorkshire, and Glyndebourne Opera in East Sussex.
Becoming freelance Ann set up her own independent workshop as a costume maker working for TV, theatre, film, opera and ballet companies.
She then progressed onto managing costume workshops for several high profile studio based films.
Leaving the making world behind she became a costume designer for film and TV and now designs productions with a heavy costume bias, mostly ( but not exclusively ) period and fantasy.
She has worked on a variety of projects both at home and abroad and has recently returned from Malaysia after working on Christopher Hamptons 1940’s novel adaptation of The Singapore Grip.
Ann is English and based in the UK.
