    About me

    Always interested in art from an early age, I was drawn to prosthetic makeup and monster making as a way to be creative, the transformation of someone to something completely different. This interest in art lead me to work in an art gallery, before leaving to do makeup artistry and special effects in college. While I was in college and after finishing I was fortunate enough to have opportunities working on a variety of different film and theatre projects as a make-up artist. I have developed very good team and leadership skills throughout my experiences. The course encouraged my passion for sculpting and making things. To improve my work, I try to keep up to date with knowledge of materials, techniques and processes. I am highly self-motivated, efficient in my work and organised.
