I am based in London and the South West but travel extensively for my work.
After graduating from West Thames College, I began to assist makeup artists on short films, promotional videos and commercials. Since then, I have worked on a variety of productions as a freelance makeup artist.
Recently, I have been heavily involved in short student films and small theatre productions, designing and supervising the hair and makeup.
My background in Media Make-up, Beauty Therapy and Art has prepared me to work in a creative industry where I can push my limits and explore a variety of different techniques, which help bring the character life.
I have been lucky enough to work with a variety of horror makeup, including but not limited to bruises, cuts and scars.
I have also worked with a varied amount of actors, which has allowed me to develop my ability to adapt and cater to different skin types and face shapes.
I am very passionate about my makeup and I am always looking for new opportunities within the industry. I always look forward to working on new projects with talented people and I enjoy learning new skill as well as enhancing the ones I already have.

Emma Cook has been assisting me on various projects for just under a year now.
In the time she has become a trustworthy and reliable makeup assistant and she is always my first choice.
Emma is very popular with both cast and crew due to her bubbly and friendly personality. She has just recently assisted me on a film four short film called 'The Briny' which was filmed in Suffolk. As this was a very hectic schedule Emma was required to go to location on her own while I attended to the principal actor.! In that time she took care of all the extras and a couple of feature actors in my absence.
I trust Emma with any task that is assigned to her and I know that when she is given a specific brief, she listens, understands and produces high quality work.
