I am used to addressing a lot of people in my day job and I am confident and uninhibited in front of an audience or camera. I intend to take early retirement so that I can concentrate fully on acting and modelling. I am versatile, a quick learner and would like experience of as many different projects and genres as possible so that I can progress my career. On the amateur stage I have enjoyed playing principal roles including playing the landlady and the other 6 female parts in "TWO" by Jim Cartwright . Next March 2018 I am looking forward to playing Maggie Thatcher in "Handbagged " by Moira Buffini. I have trained at the Jim Cartwright Drama Studio and am currently training with ActUpNorth and the Actors Lab. I have worked from scripts and written and performed monologues. I have also done lots of improvising and have performed monologues, set scripts and improvised duologues in front of the camera. Through joining StarNow in July 2017, I have enjoyed the experience of modelling , and taking part in several short films and promotional and corporate videos.
I can do various accents including RP, Cheshire, Manchester, Yorkshire, Liverpool, Glaswegian ( check out the mixed voices audio) and have been cast in several voice overs.
I am also an accomplished violinist and have played the onstage fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof and a gypsy violinist in a pantomime. I was pleased to have the opportunity to play my violin in addition to acting in a short film about Mata Hari Summer 2017.

I am an accomplished violinist/ violist and have played with my string quartet for 20+ years. We play at weddings and corporate and charity events. I have led several amateur orchestras as guest leader and was principal leader with the GPO 1994-2004. I have also formed 2 semi professional orchestras in 2004, the Amaretti Chamber Orchestra and the Athenean Ensemble. I lead them both both and fix the players. I was pleased to have the opportunity to play my violin for a recent short film about Mata Hari. I have also been the onstage fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof and a gypsy violinist in a pantomime.
Although I don't play the piano very much any more, I am still competent and got to grade 7 when I was 14.
I can sing in tune preferably as a backing singer or choir member.
