I am a reliable, hard-working, enthusiastic and highly motivated hair and make-up artist based in London. Having had a previous career as a teacher I am familiar with early starts and long working hours, and have a great deal of experience working with people in a professional manner, and am also very experienced with managing my time, prioritising tasks, being flexible and working effectively both as part of a team, following instruction and working independently using my own initiative to solve challenges, should they arise, to ensure tasks are completed efficiently and successfully. I also have a full UK driving license and am therefore able to travel to jobs as necessary.
I completed the 16 week Complete Make-Up Artist Course at Delamar Academy of Make Up and am trained and proficient in: beauty make up; period make up; casualty and character make up; basic prosthetics and bald caps; period hair styling/wigs; contemporary hair styling; airbrushing and body painting as well as having some experience of knotting facial hair.
Since graduating from the academy I have completed work experience in the crowd room for a couple of episodes on Season 4 of E!'s 'The Royals'; assisted with hair and make-up for the Dove Self-Esteem Project campaign photoshoot; worked as a hair and make-up artist for promotional shots for Series 2 of E4's 'Stage School' and also worked as part of the hair and make up team for the 'Miss USSR Finals 2017'; as well as completing work experience in the Hair and Make Up Department for Opera Holland Park in the summer of 2017 and The British Youth Opera's run of Don Giovanni.
I am passionate about continuing my professional development in Hair and Make-up and would love to continue to develop my skills, particularly in prosthetics as well as hair styling and wig dressing.
Ultimately my goal is to gain further experience in the Hair and Make-Up Department in film and television whilst supporting teams in a role as a Trainee or Make-Up Assistant.
