About

I’ve always had a passion for art, hair & make up.  I remember going through my mum’s make up bag at an early age (6) and trying on her Boots No.17 “Under The Sun” lipstick, oh so 70′s!
When I was a teenager high fashion magazines always inspired me and I loved to experiment with different makeup styles, products and colours.
These interests followed me into adulthood and I studied Art & Drama at school it was then I realised I wanted to become a makeup artist.

I finally became a Makeup Artist & Hair Designer in my mid 20′s (1996, 20 years ago) whilst working at the B.B.C in Information Technology.  I met Celine Dione’s & the Bee Gee’s make up artist in the B.B.C Lottery Studio and decided that I need to make a career change to feed my creative urges.

I quit my job and channelled all of my money and passion into my make up artist & hair design course, at Brushstrokes Make Up & Hair School at Shepperton Studios.  The rest is history.
I remember enjoying the course so much and just didn’t want it to end, why didn’t I do this earlier!
Upon conclusion of my industry training and obtaining my professional Advanced Makeup Artistry qualifications I immediately commenced work as a freelance artist working in various T.V productions: B.B.C & Channel 5 where I gained valued experience.

I moved to Phuket Thailand in 2001 and have since created my own successful business in makeup & hair which I’m continually expanding and always updating.
I never stop learning and improving!
Over the years I have been published in various magazines and created over 1,200+ bridal makeup & hair designs.
My favourite products include Temptu Pro (Airbrush MakeUp), Make Up Store, M.A.C, Bobbi Brown, NARS & Chanel.
