I’m a Welsh Actress, Voice Artist, Singer, Writer and Composer who has been working in the Theatre, Arts and Television industry for over twenty years.

I graduated from Trinity, St David’s University, Carmarthen in 2000 with a BA Honours in Theatre Studies and went on to play the lead in a bi-lingual TIE tour of Garden Girls / Merched Y Gerddi with Arad Goch Theatre Company.

In 2001 I flew to Ibiza to work as a Children’s Entertainer at Fiesta Resorts, Cala Nova and as a featured stage dancer in Lucifer and Amnesia Nightclubs.

Between 2002 and 2014 I worked as Artistic Director, Actress and Co-Writer for Theatr Bwcibo, a bi-lingual Theatre Company co-formed with my Writer, Director mother, Diana Bianchi; producing predominently One-Woman Shows. Stage Productions included The One Road, Yr Un Cam, Catrin Glyndŵr (Welsh and English adaptation), Night Chronicles, Bei-Ling Burlesque, Living The Past, Byw’r Gorffennol, Do You Remember?, Bei-ling Burlesque 2012, Ifor Ap Meurig Y Dyn Dewr and Dwynwen Dylwythen Y Don A’r Corachod Bach Ffyddlon Y Tîr, Ffararararaldiri. The nature of Theatr Bwcibo’s shows ranged in genres from Medieval to Musical Theatre with poetry, music and dance at the core of our creations. I was delighted in 2004 when the Actor, Director and Playwright, Huw Garmon chose to direct and co-write Theatr Bwcibo’s Welsh language drama production – Catrin Glyndŵr, which toured throughout Wales. The English adaptation of Catrin Glyndŵr toured to the Edinburgh and Arundel Fringe Festival in 2005.
