A Bit About Me

Hello. I’m so pleased you found me.

If I’m going to be standing very close to your face, I think it’s important that you know a little bit about me, don’t you?

I’m a hair & make-up artist and I like making people like you look incredible.

Raised in the glorious Herefordshire countryside (although i grew up in the considerably warmer climates of the Middle East) I have always had an eye for beauty. With a BA honours in Theatre Design and an ITEC Diploma in Fashion, Theatre and Media Hair & Make-Up from Shepperton Studios under my belt, I have travelled the world as both a make-up artist and a model. I’m now primarily based in London where I live with my boyfriend and a record-breaking stack of Vogue magazines. Though based in South London, I still travel far and wide for work in my ruby-red Mini known to her friends as ‘Dolly’. Dolly and I have clocked up a lot of miles together and she’s the best friend a girl could have.

I have been lucky enough to develop a lovely client portfolio spanning print, fashion, music, online publications and television. A consummate professional with a real sense of fun and whimsy (so I’m told), I bring bags of energy and imagination to every project and pride myself on developing long-lasting relationships with clients from a spectrum of industries. I use only the very best products (believe me, I’ve done the research) and have a history of happy clients.

Okay. We all know why you’ve really read this far: celebrity name-dropping.

Fine, here you go: I’ve painted such faces as Sam Smith, Snow Patrol, Tinchey Stryder, The Vamps, Steps and even, somewhat incongruously, proper old school actors like Richard E Grant and Robert Lindsay. I’ve also worked on the catwalks and photoshoots of some exciting mega-labels like Christian Dior, Lancôme, Aquascutum, Jigsaw and good old M&S. I have a few TV shows to my name as well, including X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing.

My most thrilling star clients, however, were the Chuckle Brothers. I kid you not. A childhood dream come true and no mistake. They were total sweethearts.

I’ll leave you with a few words from somebody who probably knows more about beauty than anyone else on this planet:

“Fashions come and go but style is eternal.”
Yves Saint Laurent
