ABOUT

Welcome!
 

I am a freelance professional makeup artist based in London and the South East, available to work throughout the UK and internationally.

With a background in Art & Design and the Performing Arts, I always knew I wanted to work within a creative industry that allowed me to recapture the exciting and intense atmosphere of being in the backstage and behind-the-scenes environments I thrived on.

I trained at Brushstroke in Shepperton Film Studios, where I studied in Fashion and Specialised Makeup for TV, Film and Theatre.
Being within a working film studio on a daily basis only fed my motivation for working in the industry, and I have since been fortunate enough to gain a wealth of experience; working within the Hair & Makeup departments on various scale productions, and in many areas of the industry, including Film (Feature and Short), Television, Music, Commercial, Editorial and Events, as well as working with private clients.

 

Since completing my training, I have also continued to further my education and invest my career by completing various specialised short courses; including Laying Facial Hair with Emmy Award-Winning Makeup Artist Polly Earnshaw at Pinewood Studios.
Continually topping-up on my knowledge and skills is something I really value and love to do as often as I can- I also find every job I do has something unique to offer, and allows me to constantly adapt, enhance and grow my existing skillset.

 

As a Hair and Makeup artist I thoroughly enjoy working closely with Directors, Performers and Clients during the design processes of any production or event. This is so I am able to take on their interpretations, understand their creative ideas and make their visions a reality.

I hope you enjoy looking around my website. For any enquiries, questions or comments please feel free to get in touch through my Contact page.
