About Me

Hair and make up artist with thirteen years worth of experience in the film and TV industry. 4 Years experience in leading and designing. Trained at the DFMA Make Up Academy 2012. Driver with clean driving license, BECTU membership and infection prevention and control qualified. Updated COVID safety in make up artistry (DFMA).

As a current doctoral student in health research with years of experience in the healthcare field, I like to apply my knowledge of a wide range of health conditions and skin dystrophies to enhance my creativity and accuracy in special effects make up and design. Whilst I enjoy the balance of creativity and research, and it has taken years to find the equal balance of creative flexibility and rigid accuracy. For this reason, I value intense pre-production (research) preparation, as I understand the importance that make up design and application has on a whole production. Besides having years of experience in fashion and theatre make up, I have chosen to stick to TV and film make up artistry as I appreciate the need (and challenge) to consider product choice and the compatibility with lighting and the screen.
