About the Artist

Stella MacArthur began scenic painting for performances from a young age. After obtaining a degree in 3D Effects for Performance at the London College of Fashion in 2016, Stella went on to paint set pieces for theatre productions and festivals; including Bristol production Dancing with my Ghosts and Glastonbury festival.

In 2017 Stella moved to Manchester and worked with TakeOne Scenic Company and The Crystal Maze Immersive Theatre Experience as a scenic painter and decorator.

Upon moving back to Bristol Stella got more involved with costume for performances, and began making headdresses. She made headdresses for The Invisible Circus, Boomtown Festival and The Wandering Wood Circus.

Currently, Stella is creating headdresses on a freelance basis and building up a portfolio of work of her own original designs.
