I started my career in the theatres of Glasgow as a make up assistant, working my way through the ranks to become a make up designer for film, fashion and print. Travelling across the UK and Europe with a range of clients in both the media and offering private consults, I have been able to create a sense of style to my make up designs that is uniquely my own. I offer a wide range of services from beauty to basic FX and character work.
With have credits ranging through magazines, films, websites, wedding parties, fashion shows and commercial work. I strive to create the best possible work and continue to be as dynamic creatively as I can be.
Inspired by old Hollywood’s glamour and decadence, as well as the people I meet everyday, I am always exploring new avenues and working with people to create inspiring work from the beautiful to the bizarre.
With a career spanning ten years and counting I take pleasure in my work and see each new day as an opportunity to do something creative and unique.
