''The Linbury Prize certainly propelled me forwards into the industry and gave me the chance to work with a great company at the Royal Lyceum where I learnt so much at the start of my career. It has opened doors for me for the past twenty years, as it taught me to always aim high, push boundaries and make every element as beautiful as it can be, as well as to strip things away and use only what is necessary to tell a story.’’
