She has a large collection of professionally made costumes covering periods from Medieval, 17th and 18th centuries, Regency, late Victorian, Edwardian into the 1920s right up to the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Her BBC credits include “Harlots, Heroines and Housewives” with Lucy Worsley, “Strictly Cinderella” for CBeebies and recently also for CBeebies, a programme 'Marrying Mum and Dad" which involved supplying 56 costumes from the 17th century. Two scenarios for Dave, “School of Hard Sums” (pirates and Regency settings). She also costumed a short film about Tchaikovsky “Love Song” directed by Ian Woodward (Encore Films) which has been entered in several Film Festivals around the world.
