Leeds based, internationally published, creative and SFX hair & makeup artist. I am open to all styles but am generally drawn to the weird and wonderful.

Limited TF collaborations if the project is something I'm particularly interested in or if I feel it could benefit my portfolio but mainly taking bookings for paid work, with very good rates available!

I am happy to travel for shoots but if it is out of the Leeds area or not easily accessible I do request that travel costs are reimbursed as I am currently unable to drive so am having to reply on public transport or taxis, though this can be discussed prior to arranging anything.

I find inspiration for my makeup everywhere and have many, many ideas of my own, though am happy to work to a brief if you have something more specific in mind. 

I have completed Levels 3, 4 and 5 in Creative Makeup and am currently in my final year of my BA Hons Degree in SFX and fashion hair/makeup. I have been in the industry for 5+ years and have been studying makeup academically for the last 3+ years.

With previous work within a studio setting and as an editor, I'll always be happy to get involved behind the scenes, helping with styling, posing, lighting etc. I'm great at holding a reflector... but I know when to stay out of the way too! I am far from glamorous myself and don't mind getting down and dirty when needed on location, and I always prefer to stay to the end of a shoot rather than leaving once the makeup is complete. As well as shoots I have experience in working runways including London Fashion Week, on music videos and live events.

Thanks for looking!
