    About me

    Originally from Scotland I moved to London in 2003 to study at London College of Fashion on the BA (Hons) Make Up for the Performing Arts. I was delighted to receive a 2:1 honours degree in 2006. After graduation I initially completed a UK musical theatre tour, where I was head of make up and prosthetics for Beauty and the Beast. I returned to London in 2007 and since then have worked within Theatre, Opera, TV and Film.

    I have worked on several West End musicals such as Hairspray, The Sound of Music and Grease and on plays including Chariots of Fire and The National Theatres 1 Man & 2 Governors. My Opera credits span 7 years of freelancing at The English National Opera; including supervising the 2012 production of The Flying Dutchman. . I have been lucky enough to work under several prominent Wigs and Make up Designers including Richard Mawbey, Carol Hancock and Campbell Young.

    My Film experience includes dailys on features such as Fast & Furious 6, Belle, Snowwhite & Huntsman, Dark Shadows, Trance and 47 Ronin. I also worked main team on feature Retreat where I was looking after Jamie Bell. My TV experience includes working for BBC, HBO, SKY 1 and ITV with credits such as Larkrise to Candleford series 3 and 4, Pixelface and dailys on Dancing on Ice, Mount Pleasant and Parades End. I also work regularly within commercials for companies including Sky +, Toshiba, Nokia and McDonalds.

    I strive to keep my skills current and expand my product knowledge by attending various make up seminars including MAC Cosmetics master classes and completing vocational training such as Airbrushing and Bodypainting etc..
