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, where I am looking after fabulous Dreamgirls Asmeret Ghebremichael, aka "Lorell Robinson" and Liisi LaFontaine "Deena Jones" plus the lovely swings who step into their roles regularly. 

After thirty-five years and 13 major awards DREAMGIRLS opened it's doors at the Savoy Theatre, London on November 19th 2016 to rave reviews from all theatre critics and patrons. The show is directed and choreographed by the hugely successful, Tony® award-winning Casey Nicholaw (Book of Mormon, Aladdin), and stars the wonderfully talented Amber Riley (Glee) as Effie White!   

Prior to joining Dreamgirls, I've been fortunate to work on some of the most successful 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's 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 worked for the world's leading cosmetic houses including Clarins, Lancome and MAC Cosmetics.

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.
