    About me

    I am a student at London College of Fashion (UAL) specialising in Hair, Makeup and Prosthetics for Performance. After working with The Royal Academy of Music on their rendition of The Magic Flute this past month, my love and passion for working backstage has been cemented, since I designed the makeup and ran the team of 4 other artists. I am currently working on a student art film, and am skilled in wig setting, styling and applying with a strong interest in learning new techniques and stretching myself. I am a great listener and pick up new technique instantly. I am adaptable and able to work well under pressure; this was shown off when working for the Royal Academy and the National Theatre’s Public Acts project (Summer 2019).
