Pickled Image

Pickled Image is a production company specialising in puppetry for live performance and theatre. Formed in 2000, the company has created a distinct trademark style and has won many awards for their darkly humorous visual productions.

The directors of the company are Dik Downey & Vicky Andrews. Dik has entertained audiences in various guises from fire-eater, escapologist, clown and puppeteer. As a highly talented designer and puppet maker Dik has applied those skills to creating some of the company’s most striking puppets.

Vicky trained as a sculptor, illustrator and theatre designer and has been involved in designing shows for venues such as Bristol Old Vic, Bath Theatre Royal and the Welsh National Opera.
