I am a fully qualified Hair, Wigs and Make-up artist with over 17 years industry experience in all areas of Make-up Artistry.
When I qualified I began working with the Scottish Opera, where I was able to work on some of the worlds most famous operas and gain a vast amount of experience working with the brilliant wig maker Campbell Young.
During this time I was also employed by one of the words top brands in the make-up industry; Bobbi Brown. I have been part of the Bobbi team for 17 years which has allowed me to keep up to date with the ever changing trends within the fashion industry; as well as having the opportunity to meet Bobbi in person!
Due to my vast, and varied, service within the industry I am able to pass on my experiences to make-up students within my role as a college lecturer and workshop tutor.
I also carry out as much freelance work as possible within TV, Film, Theatre, Photographic and Bridal make-up.
This varied experience is extremely valuable and has saw me being part of exciting events ranging from the Scottish Fashion Awards to Britain’s Next Top Model; as well as assisting with make-up at the Fringe Festival production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with Christian Slater and, more recently, The Railway Man starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
“To me, being a Make-up Artist is not just a career choice, it is a passion. I love continually meeting new people and the challenges that go hand in hand with the make-up profession”
