  • Location: Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a passionate and innovative make-up and prosthetics artist who can communicate with a diverse range of people. I have followed directions as well as taken initiative throughout my career working both individually and as part of a team. I have explored a variety of different techniques within make-up, prosthetic and hair styling during my time in education and know having this variety ensures I always deliver the best results. I am a very sociable person with a strong understanding of the etiquette required whilst on set and will always strive to exceed peoples expectations.

Since completing my BA Degree in Makeup and Special Effects with a First Class Honours, I worked as a makeup, hair and prosthetics artist on a low budget TV pilot, did dailies as a junior Hair and Makeup artist with the TV series 'Marcella 2' for ITV in 2017. Since then I have been working as a Technician for the Media Make-up with Special Effects course at Bradford College.

I'm always looking for opportunities to collaborate so if you have a project in mind, please don't hesitate to contact me.
