About me

A talented and highly resourceful make up artist, with a wide arcing range of skills, I trained under the rigorous eyes of the tutors at Greasepaint. Benefiting from their years of experience, my artistic background and interest in colour and shading developed into an eye for precision and detail - and an appreciation for the beauty in the minor details that coalesce into a completed effect. I am extremely hardworking, focussed, and delight in fitting into a production crew with an excellent grasp of crew dynamics and set etiquette developed in ample on-set experience.

In particular, my interests lie in the area of film - not simply in my area of expertise, but in all areas of filmmaking I am eager to expand my knowledge and understanding, as well as keen to gain more experience in the industry.

Additional Information

I am currently based in Central London, but happy to travel out of the city.

If required, I can bring an assistant along with me for no extra cost. Her name is Henri Hart and is skilled in make-up, organisation and costume.
