My Background


I am a professionally trained wig mistress/dresser and makeup artist who graduated from the fabulous Delamar Academy, a world leader in the training of BAFTA winning makeup artists, based at London's historic Ealing Film Studios.

Having worked in West End theatre for a number of years, I am now working on the multi-Tony®, Golden Globe and Oscar winning DREAMGIRLS at London's Savoy Theatre, where I am looking after the fabulous Dreamgirls, Moya Angela aka "Effie White", Asmeret Ghebremichael, aka "Lorell Robinson" and Brennyn Lark, aka "Deena Jones". 

Prior to joining the wig crew at Dreamgirls, I have been fortunate to work on some of the most successful, award winning and dynamic West End shows with many incredible performers including, Wicked, Showboat, The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys and Bend it like Beckham.

My career has also included a number of high profile assignments at the Olivier Awards, Children in Need, West End Live, ITV's This Morning Show and Comic Relief.

Earlier in my career, I trained with world leading cosmetic houses including Clarins, Lancome and MAC Cosmetics. Today, in addition to my Dreamgirls assignment, I am using this experience as a freelance make-up artist for top UK fashion brand, ASOS, where I collaborate with their stylist's to showcase ASOS clothing in their best light.

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.

As you will see from the testimonials on this site, my broad experience coupled with a fresh innovative approach to makeup and hair design means that I quickly understand my client’s needs and ensure their natural beauty always shines through for their special event - please look at the wedding section for the various services I can offer. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me by email or on my mobile +44 (0) 7742 289121 to discuss your requirements for your special event.

Thanks for visiting my website and I look forward to talking to you soon.
