Stage Design
In the 1950's Jill completed a course of Theatre design studies at Wimbledon School of Art and then at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.

The course of study led Jill to examine the role of costume in combination with her love of the theatre, it was the perfect apprenticeship.

Costume designs from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas are shown on the left.

On the right and below we see Tamora, Queen of the Goths, Titus and Martius, Jill's make-up designs for Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedy Titus Andronicus. The production was to be performed as a traditional Japanese Kabukie drama, hence the very stylised make-up directions.
