Recently, I was honoured to apply the wigs and makeup for Frozen's Performance photoshoot by world renouned photographer, Rankin, which celebrates the London's world-leading theatre.  

Earlier in my career, I worked and trained with the worlds leading cosmetic houses, including Mac Cosmetics, Clarins and Lancome and i've brought my experience to top UK fashion brand, ASOS, collaborating with their stylist's to showcase ASOS clothing.



In addition to my theatre and television work, I have for a number of years, provided a special occasion makeover and wedding makeup/hair service.
