Hi, I'm Gillian and I design and make sets, lighting, puppets and costumes for theatre in Canberra, Australia (and other places too). I am also the Production Manager and in house Lighting Designer at The Street Theatre in Canberra.
As part of a creative team, I work towards an in-depth understanding of the journey of the work and support it with designs that move and change with the narrative. I believe that collaboration is the core strength of good theatre and approach every production with this in mind. Regardless of the capacity I am working in I am always mindful of the artistic, budgetary and scheduling goals of the project and try to work as transparently and flexibly as possible.
My favourite theatre is the kind that changes the way I see the world.
