Back in the 1980’s after leaving art college, I trained as a Scenic Artist and most of the work was done for West End stage productions. Often it was an exciting job with great comradeship and teamwork, but as Stained Glass became a passionate interest I changed career. Nevertheless these skills are still called on from time to time and as a singer in our local opera group, White Horse Opera , I have designed and co-ordinated the painting of over a dozen sets for the annual productions. Below are some examples of the scaled stage models and set painting etc.
At present I am involved in WHITE HORSE OPERA'S 2012 production of "La Traviata".
The director has set the time Circa 1910 Paris, and a number of paintings, by well known Post Impressionist painters of the time, are being used to set the stage and mood of each scene.
