about me.

This photo of me was taken by a fantastic photographer I have had the pleasure to work with many times - thanks Lenka! x

Ever since I can remember I’ve had a creative side, loved visual beauty and had a strong desire to help people.


In 2009, after some soul searching, I decided to enroll in a Beauty Therapy course. I thrive on constructive human interaction and feel at home when surrounded by color, excitement and the opportunity to use my creativity and skill to help people look their best. One week into the professional makeup module and I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life!!


Since then I have learned a lot, worked with some fantastic, talented people and was lucky enough to be in the tutelage of an expert mentor under which I acquired advanced techniques and industry skills.


Currently residing in West Hollywood, I have worked closely with artists, photographers and designers from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, San Francisco and LA on a range of Film, Editorial and Fashion industry projects.  I also help clients with public and private formal events - particularly when it comes to weddings and television appearances.

Additionally I am a licensed aesthetician, and so always perform a comprehensive skin assessment during every consulation. This ensures that every product used is specifically selected and individually matched to my client.


I love it when people leave my chair happy, relaxed and confident that they can put their best face forward!


The work you see on is a snapshot of my continued development as a professional makeup artist.
