    About me

    Hi, I'm a Makeup, Special Effects and Prosthetics Artist. I have studied at The London College of Fashion and recently attended a Prosthetics course at Pinewood Studios taught by the talented prosthetics artist Stuart Bray. After completing my Illustration degree I soon realised I wanted to transfer my artistic and creative skills into a different visual form. I have had some experience working on short films and would love the chance to expand on these experiences and to use further my special effects and prosthetics knowledge.
