    About me

    I have previously achieved a first class honours from London College of Fashion in the degree specialism of Hair, Make up and Prosthetics for Performance. From this training I have developed a range of skills including the creation of wigs and prosthetics and their application. Since graduating in 2019, I have worked at the Royal Shakespeare Company as a Second Assistant Wigs and Make-up Artist. From this employment, I have gained great insight into theatre production and worked behind the scenes completing quick changes. I have developed wig making skills further and maintained the high standard of wig styling through hair dressing skills.
