Hi welcome to my website..Since studying IHBC Media Makeup at Sterex Academy in Coventry in 1994 I gained experience working as a makeup artist for Central TV and various fashion photographers in Birmingham and the Midlands and was a runner up on the clothes show makeup artist of the year competition on BBC1. Since then I have been based in London and have worked with many different celebrities, musicians, models, actors and personalities like Anita Pallenberg, Paul King, Vinnie Jones and Giulia Elettra, on advertising campaigns such as Garnier, Pepsi, Rimmel London and Storm. Music promos with bands such as Nylo, Chris Aliano, Pato Banton, Rozelle and Siren for Gnarls Berklay. Fashion editorials and covers for magazines such as Rewind and Disorder and film, theatre and t.v productions Look What They Have Done To My Song by Micheal Curran, Bugsy Mallone and Premiere. I see the skin as a canvas therefore creating a work of art on every face.
I also work as a prop / wardrobe stylist for music promos and photo shoots specialising in recycled and vintage clothes, props and accessories.
If you are interested in collaborating on a project or want to book me for a makeup or styling session please email me through my contact page to discuss prices and availability.
