    About me

    I am a confident hardworking individual with a wide range of experience working in theatre and on various television productions .

    I have a BA (hons) degree in Theatre Arts- Makeup & Hair for TV, Film and Theatre in which I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2014 and a Foundation degree in Hair & Makeup for TV, Film & Theatre.

    Working as the makeup and wig manager, two years running, for Opera de Baugé , located by the Loire Valley France, I have skills in management, designing and also teaching my skills to the performers in the show. As the Makeup & Wig designer I was responsible for the design, organisation and application of hair makeup and wigs for three different operas over a three week performance period.

    I worked 6 Operas in total over the years, including; Aida (2013), Die Fledermaus (2013), L'elisir D'amore (2013) Madame Butterfly (2014), Pagliacci (2014), Le Nozze di Figaro (2014).

    I have a variety of experience in the business, not only in theatre but also in television in which I have great knowledge and understanding in the set-up and management of productions. When working on ‘Episodes’ (Hat Trick Productions) I worked closely with other makeup & hair artists making sure we worked effectively to create perfect looks set by the designer and were able to keep these looks immaculate through the filming days. Having high attention to detail, great organisation and communication skills are key elements to success.
