Since leaving my role in the early 90’s as PA at L’Oreal, I have been pursuing my career as a freelance makeup and hair artist. Working as an assistant to make-up artists Val Garland and Charlotte Tilbury, for several seasons, gave me a great training in the industry.
My job has taken me all over the world, either for Advertising campaigns for Dolce & Gabanna in Milan, Uniqlo in the Alps, Editorial in the Maldives for Japanese Vogue, or Fashion Shows in Milan or Paris, I have loved every experience and travelling is an added bonus.
I have worked with celebrity clientele such as Catherine Zeta Jones, David Beckham, Donatella Versace, Jessica Ennis and Kim Catrall, on various projects recently.
I have led teams of makeup artists for fashion shows here in London (BEN DE LISI, MARGARET HOWEL, ANTONI & ALISON, JOHN ROCHA, SHARON WAUCHOB, VERONIQUE LEROY, KATARAZYNA SZECTRZCK, CAMILLA STAERK) and as an assistant to Val Garland on shows such as Alexander McQueen, and Dior and with Linda Cantello for Balenciaga in Milan and Paris.
I am the owner of a London based makeup school in the Shoreditch area of East London, http://www.shoreditchschoolofmakeup.co.uk/ which has been successfully running for over 4 years, teaching a wide variety of part and full time courses from beginners to advanced level.
This year I was Chief Hair and Makeup Artist (Designer) on a British film called Svengali (with actors Martin Freeman and Vicky McClure) due to be released in early 2013 which was an amazing honour and experience.
