I am a professionally trained Make-up & Hair stylist working in TV, Film, Theatre, Fashion, Media and Bridal hair and make-up styling for 15 years.
I have always been passionate and had a creative flair for art. I decided to become a professional make-up artist after completing my art degree. I realised I had a talent for make up whilst working for Estee Lauder as a part-time make up artist while I was studying for my degree.
Following my degree, I moved to London where I attended Greasepaint - International School of Television, Film and Theatre. Here I gained extensive training and I qualified in all aspects of make-up and hair styling. I am also an NVQ Level 2 qualified hairdresser.
While working in the make-up field I gained much experience in the television industry working on programmes such as Bloomberg News and the Community Channel. I have also worked extensively in film and theatre.
As well as my television, film and theatre work I have gained experience in fashion make-up working on shoots for Impact Model Management and various magazines and photoshoots for companies such as TK Maxx, Sainsbury’s, Lion TV and Skoda.
I have been featured in a reality TV show called Hired or Fired on Sky TV Channel - Red. Demonstrating my expertise in make-up and hair. You can see all of my videos here.
One of the most rewarding things I have done is giving career talks to potential future make-up artists at Birmingham City College.
