    About me

    I am a highly passionate and dedicated make-up artist. I work well under pressure and am aware of time limitations. I thrive when working as part of a team and enjoy meeting new people, working with performers, directors, and working in different environments. My passion truly lies with special effects make-up and I have recently completed my diploma at ACMUSE in Sydney, Australia. I am now based in the south of England and looking to expand my experience in film and tv.
