Born: 16.05.58. Haverfordwest, Wales. U.K. Languages: English, French Qualifications: Graduate Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff, Wales. 1979 B.A. Theatre, University of Cardiff, Wales. 1979 BIOGRAPHY Devoid of substance, light has the singular capacity to create and metamorphize the visual and emotional impact of a place, an architecture, a scene …I have worked for a wide range of theatre, entertainment and architectural projects, nationally and internationally, both as lighting designerand consultant. Following my training and ‘apprenticeship’ of 12 years designing for the theatre and finally working on a number of west-endmusicals, I moved to France where I now live and from where my work is based.Since then, I have designed the lighting in a number of different disciplines, as much for the stage and show business, as for son et lumières,spectacles and architecture.A long and on-going affair with theme parks – design, installation and operation – has logically led me to the development of combiningtheatrical lighting idioms into an architectural context, resulting in a dynamic and dramatic design approach. The incorporation of highdefinition image and video projection further augments and extends the palette, offering even more innovative possibilities.The treatment of whatever subject through the application of light is achieved through an intimate understanding of this ephemeral mediumand its expressive possibilities. The result reflects the close collaboration and dialogue with the client or design team and subsequent creativetranslation of vision to reality.I have notably designed the park-wide architectural lighting for the Parc Asterix, the musical ‘Freedom’ at the Cirque d’Hiver, Paris; the LightHarp and the main entrance hall for the Space Museum, Toulouse; ‘Fantasy Kingdom’ for the theme park ‘Gardaland’, Italy; the spectacle‘Poussières d’Etoiles’ for the Science and Industry Museum, Paris and ‘Océan de Vies’ at the marine museum, Océanopolis, Brest.I am currently working on a project for Center Parcs in Moselle.
