Hello, I’m Ellen, a prop maker and craftsperson based in south-east England.

I was a contracted member of the props team at Glyndebourne for the 2016-2021 festival seasons, during which I assisted with the transition into their new Production Hub. In 2021 I moved on to work on a major project for Amazon Studios.

I undertake independent commissions alongside my contracted work and have created pieces for, among others, The National Theatre, the BBC and AAA Theatre.

I am experienced in working with the large variety of materials and techniques to the standards required by prestigious production environments.

I graduated with distinction from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 2015. My diploma was in Technical Theatre and Stage Management and I specialised in prop making. I have a First Class honours degree in Drama and Theatre Studies from Royal Holloway, University of London, from which I graduated in 2011. I am also an illustrator and trained picture framer, and have previously worked as an actor in both professional and amateur theatre.

Thank you for visiting!
