I am fast approaching 35 years on this weird and wonderful planet, the past 8 years of which I have been working hard in the colourful and broad spectrum of the makeup industry, both in the UK, Europe and around the world. I currently spend the majority of my time either working my makeup magic on my lovely clients from my home studio in the city centre, or else I am out and about on freelance makeup jobs around the UK, and planning international travels. I initially moved up from my home town of Oxford in 2002 and attended Glasgow School of Art. In 2008 I achieved a BA(Hons) in Visual Communication: Illustration. In 2010, I commenced my makeup artistry career with a brief stint at Urban Decay, followed by a more developmental phase at Illamasqua. Here I evolved my illustrative skills into the makeup industry. I won a competition at Illamasqua for dedication, hard work and creative flair; the prize being a trip representing the brand in an Ambassadorial way at the opening of the world's first Illamasqua franchise store in Zagreb, Croatia. Going from strength to strength, on Valentines Day in 2013, I left Illamasqua to establish myself as a self employed MUA, gaining a cult following from both national and international clients. Recent events in 2015 include being the guest judge for Illusion Face Painting magazine's lip art competition, writing regular lipstick reviews for Lipcote's Lipstick Finder website, doing a photoshoot for the Daily Record on behalf of Rainbow Rooms International and finally; being the sole makeup artist on a short educational film about social anxiety. I have been interviewed for various online blogs including Thrifty Hunter, as well as being spoken to by the likes of Illamasqua and This Is Scot Fashion. I have also worked at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend festival in 2014, and my makeup is in the music videos for Congorock & Nom De Strip and John Cale (previously of The Velvet Underground).
