I have been working in the creative industry as a freelance makeup artist for the past 8 years - during which time my work has taken me across a multitude of avenues within the makeup industry including; Film, commercial stills and advertising for television, bridal & special events, editorials, corporate head shots and even within the performing arts. 

My  work in film has been featured on screens around Australia and internationally in advertising, music videos, web content and short films, while my editorial work has been published both online and in printed magazines. 

I have a real passion and enthusiasm for the makeup industry, and I am constantly striving to up-skill and grow as an artist.

It's a true joy for me to work in all area's of makeup, and I love working with a great crew on a film shoot, or sharing those special moments with a bride on her wedding day. My warm and bubble personality make me easy to work with and fun to be around.  I pride myself on my ability enhance the natural beauty of a client, in creating a beautifully textured makeup for a fashion editorial, or helping to build the look to character to bring it to life. 
Not two days are the same, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
