Having been in the makeup industry for over 9 years, I have been around the block I suppose you could say.  I started my career in 2010 at the then pretty alternative/punk Illamasqua counter in Glasgow, where I honed my craft and got to travel around to London and Zagreb.  After going entirely freelance in 2012, I have travelled with my makeup work - all over the UK and Europe, as well as the USA.  

I have a certificate in Special Effects trauma makeup with the legend that is Stuart Bray, always a hoot and some hefty alchemy crafting a bit of gore now and again.

I have a few music videos under my belt, John Cale (previously of The Velvet Underground) to name one of the heavy hitters.  Catwalk, editorial and glamour girl makeup were my bread and butter too.
